  • Long puff sleeves with elastic cuffs and ribbon trim at the bottom hem. Full flowing pleated skirt with tiered detail in midi length tent dress style. The hem is approximately 1” shorter in the front than the back (the dress was worn from back to front). The dress is in sheer cotton gauze and light weight fabric
  • Label = 100% Cotton. Made in India
  • Size Tag = M. Fits like S/M/ML
  • Excellent vintage condition = please note:
1) There is 1” long hand-repair underneath the left armpit 2) The bottom hem seems to have been shortened and the ribbon was stitched back around the edge by hand. I do not consider this is a flaw; however it will be worth to have it done professionally which I will leave it to the next owner to decide. Otherwise there are no other flaws to note
