Designer Note: Jay Anderson (1920-2003) was a graduate of the Ethel Traphagen School of Fashion Design in New York. He began his career as a junior designer in New York City. After a stint with the Army Corp of Engineers during WWII, he moved to Florida, where he designed custom clothes for Miami's socially prominent women. He established Jay Anderson Inc there in 1956. The company, renamed POSH Inc, became the largest couture business in the southeastern US, with collections sent to upscale stores across the country four times each year. - Courtesy POSH Inc, Records, Historical Museum of Southern Florida.

SIZE & FIT:
No size tag. Best fits: M (8 US / 12 UK)-->This is a size estimate. Please check measurements below to ensure desired fit. Mannequin is approx US size 4, 5’9” 34-24-35 / 175cm 86-61-89. The dress is lightly pinned back on her to show fit. The belt is 2 inches bigger than the waist of the dress so perhaps it’s meant to be worn a bit loose, but if you want it more fitted around your waist you can easily remove the 3 eyes & re-sew them back on to your custom measurement. If you'd like more measurements or info please contact me.
Measurements are taken seam to seam while laying flat.
