Condition

Good shape with known small cosmetic imperfections, no stains. Cleaned. 85+ years old.

Think Grapes of Wrath/Depression Era for this one. She's picked up signs of living during a tough time, BUT she was cared for with love and kept useful through mending. See charming mends/patches made by a previous owner. 

The side placket is just open, no snaps or hooks/eyes as one would expect? You can certainly add these easily, though when you put this dress on and tie it, you may not need these fasteners.

There's a tiny scrape low down on the skirt, only found by holding it against a light source. And minor damage on the edge of a rear sash that is difficult to see once it is tied.

She still presents well and the cotton fabric is very clean and VERY soft. :)
