Love it. Rich green velvet dress with overlapped bodice with ruffle of fabric on the neckline. Same overlap v-neck on the back. Soft tie belt, bias cut skirt, snaps on the side opening. The dress is unlined.
CONDITION - Good to very good condition.
The velvet is nice and strong, I see just a 1/8 inch hole in the back.
It does need a thorough steaming - I'm a very poor steamer of velvet. Some flat spots.
There is a smudgy 1 inch brown spot on the back of the neckline.
Some light aging streaks in the velvet down the front and sides of the skirt.
Some flat velvet right under the arms, but no staining there.
