Good overall vintage shape, as-is, with cosmetic imperfections. Cleaned. 65+ years old.

Small puncture type wounds found on each side of the bodice at the side seam area. Another down at the doubled hemline in the rear/side skirt. I carefully fused these from behind to make them sturdy and help hide. Flaws are (thankfully) in obscure areas of the dress, not front and center, so are overlooked when dress is worn/displayed. 

The dress feels VERY sturdy, like denim! (If you know vintage dirndls, it's the same fabric from which many are made.)

Great run-around frock for those of us who favor rare style and price over perfection. Priced as a wounded birdie and looking for a loving home.


Our pieces are true vintage with a history and a past life, not newly made reproductions. Minor signs of previous use and age are normal and expected for all true vintage pieces. Flaws and issues are carefully noted/photographed, and our detailed photos give you a good idea of the look of each garment. We're happy to answer any questions you might have to help you with online purchasing.
