About

This is truely an amazing piece, especially for its age. It is in near perfect condition with no holes, tears or blemishes of any kind. The skirt is a single layer of soft raw cotton that is covered in thicker flecks of thread which cover the whole dress. There are two small skirt layers up the dress, one that comes from the waist and the other around the knees. There is then another layer that drapes over the shoulders and the top of the dress. The sleeves have a soft waterfall effect that fall beautifully. It fastens up the back with poppers and hooks and has a boning detail around the waist to give structure.

Bust: 34"
Waist: 28"
Hips: 40"
Length: 48"
