•Highlights: I'm finding it hard not to adopt this one!; cute decorative early plastic buttons to hem; thin, fluttery, airy rayon, the cotton-y kind I prefer but also even softer than the usual; a treat to layer or to wear on her own; belt is not included

•Colors: ink blue, cream flecks that look like stars in a night sky

•Fabric(s): super soft and gauzy-feeling rayon

•Lined: no

•Closures: buttons

•Designer/Labels: An Original Fashion Frock -- they had an early door-to-door dress sales model, marketed as a way for women to earn money (see ad I found showing similar styles they offered)

Any accessories or belts shown in photos are prop pieces and not included unless mentioned.

Great vintage shape. Cleaned and sturdy. 75+ years old.

To note: as you can see in the label photo, there is some threadiness present on the edges of the interior seams, likely from previous washing. This in no way impacts the sturdiness or the exterior looks of this cutie. I just thought it worth a mention!
