I recently purchased a breathtakingly gorgeous dress (I literally want to live in the thing!❤️) from a local thrift shop and have been having a pretty tough time researching the dress maker (Addy's Oakland Calif). I'm also curious to know more about the Pearl adornments on the shoulders and bust area. I'm pretty sure the dress was produced sometime in the 40's but would also love any additional insights/confirmation of the timeline. I've posted photos of the dress itself, label, and zipper. Thanks so much for your help!
