Shoulder to hem about 46"
Shoulders - no seams
Very good vintage shape. 70+ years old.
Nitpicks: some small imperfections at rear bodice where the banded waist begins, like it got caught on something.
The bottom buttonhole on the button placket was closed by a former owner, presumably because the button went astray.
A few ghost traces of green dye drift scattered in skirt's print only found when it's spread flat and gone over closely. Not seen when worn.
The fabric belt has some age discoloration and toning on it which is visible in photos. I didn't feel right not offering the original belt with the dress.
Dress still presents beautifully, as you can see!
