Description

This vintage dress is made from a red calico cotton. The bodice is pleated on the front and has ties attached to the short stand-up collar. The skirt is pleated below the drop waist and has side seam pockets. The front of the dress closes with black multi-faceted buttons and a snap at the waistline. There is one button missing on the front of the dress and a bit of the right inner arm and the right hip area is ever so slightly faded (this is not noticeable). Otherwise this dress is in excellent condition and a rare find for it's age. There are no tags in this dress.

 

I recommend:

Machine wash cold; delicate cycle

Hang to dry

Warm iron

This garment is not dirty, however, because it may have been in storage for quite some time, I recommend laundering it or having it dry cleaned prior to wearing.
