The bodice is lined with cotton and has a front button closure. The buttons are covered with green silk. The skirt is trimmed with green silk fringe. The skirt is fully lined with cotton. The dress is in very good and sturdy condition. There is no underarm discoloration and no splits or holes in the fabric. There is some minor age spotting on the bodice lining.

From Me:

I know, only one picture, but it's too lovely to just ignore.

  1. With that line of trimming and flat skirt front, it's got to be just post-war. I like the green... I wish we could see the sleeve trim better.
