Button down through hips. Step-in.
SKIRT LENGTH 23
SLEEVE LENGTH 11
Used- Beautiful cut, but this dress does have a patch ironed on the wrong side of dress to “tack” the three tiny holes shown in photograph. I didn’t notice it from the front. This dress also has a couple of “shiny” areas (about inch in diameter) on front bodice near hem/buttons (see photo) possibly from pressing. They are slightly lighter than area plaid design. Belt also is slightly lighter in tone than dress.
The photos are lightened and you can see the sheen of fabric especially in bust area but I think this is just from the Moire finish of fabric. I don’t see it other than in photos. Photos are lightened to show detail and plaid design, but it is actually very dark in color and plaid design is only seen up close.
So used, and patched, lightly flawed but still lots of life left.
This item is sold from a vintage boutique in Presque Isle, MI.
