Sid panels of of skirt are tiered lace. Dress is sheer and unlined. No slip or undergarment included. Metal snap closure at side seam.

condition: good. Small holes in various places(size ranges from pin hole to 1.4"). A larger 2.5" mend on back of skirt in a boomerang shape.

Fits like a small.

shoulders: 13"
bust: 34"
waist: 30"
hips: 50"
length: 41"

From Me:

This looks very homemade to me - probably from an earlier dress. The ruffles on the side are consistant with an early 1930's (1931) date but the waistline is a bit low for fashion at that point - not that many were following fashion given that lil thing called the Great Depression. So somewhere between 1929/1931.
