From the seller:
Vintage Blue Velvet Lace Collared Dress
Beautiful little dress with a button up front, puff sleeves and lace collar. Measures bust 34 inch, waist 28 inches. Fastens with a zip at the side. Beautiful detailing
The seams have come apart in a few places- easily sewn back together. The (silk, I think) velvet is fairly fragile and has torn in a few places near the seams- it needs some tape on the back to fix it. I didn't notice this until I examined it for listing, and I haven't attempted to mend the dress. It has been priced accordingly. Still great shape for its age. The velvet is super soft and supple.

I am in love with this dress. Very much late 1930's in style but look at those gathers! Or that cute lace detail!
