This intriguing dress is in excellent condition for its age. No notable flaws that I can see. However, the print on this dress is quite intriguing on this dress. It is reminiscent of the Rorschach ink blot tests. Each time I look at the print I see new things: feathers, canoes, temples, corn. What do you see? Cleaned and ready to wear.
