Very good vintage shape; sold as-is. Cleaned. 60+ years old.
To note: found with a raw hem which we had professionally put in so you don't have to worry about it.
The rear bodice appears to have been let out by original owner about 1" or so along the zipper placket -- I took a photo of the evidence of this seen on the inside of dress. It would be my personal preference to have this returned to its original size (around a 27" waist), but I leave that to buyer's discretion.
A minor heel stick right at hem (see photo) and some creamy age toning along rim of bodice. A small scattering of speckles on inner skirting (see photo). There may be something else tiny that is easy to overlook.
If perfect this dress would easily be priced 2x what we ask -- it's extra beautiful.
Our pieces are true vintage with a history and a past life, not newly made reproductions. Please be familiar with vintage clothing and read over our shop policies before purchasing. We are happy to answer any questions you might have to help you with online purchasing.
