This late 40s (or perhaps early 50s) rayon frock printed with lanterns and tendril-like scroll work currently has a bid of a mere $16.05. It is rather petite at 36-26-36. I have seen dresses like this go for serious big wampum. Go get it, for crying out loud. It's got swags over the straight skirt, one of my absolute favorite dressmaking embellishments. I am plotzing.

Upon reflection, I've posted a number of novelty prints of lanterns. I even have a faux vintage pajamas printed with East Asian lanterns. There's something expansive about a lantern print that just does it for me.
