Details: Pale yellow dress with black and white accents and black and white under skirt. The dress overlay fastens up the front with 8 hook and eye closures. There are 4 crochet covered buttons that serve no purpose other than to look pretty. There is a sailor type collar that is accented with black and white and the sleeves and waistband are also accented with black and white. The bodice at the waist has lots of pleating and the sleeve and shoulder are also pleated. There is a ruffle along the bottom of the overlay.
The skirt fastens on the side with 4 hook and eye closures. There’s side where the skirt fastens is sewn in an interesting pattern, which can be seen in the photos.
Condition: Great, but there are scattered light brown spots on the dress and skirt, a few spots on the lower left of the overlay that looks like green paint, and possibly rust spots. You can see these spots in the close up of the overlay skirt . The skirt has a a few tiny spots that are thin and also has several light brown spots. Although there are spots, they are mostly faint and the outfit is still very wearable. There are also a couple of loose stitches at the shoulder and a repair to the right underarm seam.
