Nylon dance dress by Wilson Folmar of Edward Abbott
Written on verso: The short, covered dance frock is high fashion from the designing hand of Wilson Folmar of Edward Abbott. The sure fire elements in this dance dress are the deliciousness of the tangerine color and the soft floatiness of the chiffon-a combination of nylon and silk by American Silk Mills which had proved its practical as well as its fashion value. The elbow sleeved gold embroidered over blouse is Turkish in feeling. This item costs approximately $325.
