* Gorgeous ivory background, medium weight cotton dress

* The design is also ghosted in alternate panels, almost like an echo of the pattern

* Bell shaped skirt with box pleating

* Skirt has built in pellon lining for structure

* Lined bodice, mixed seams and hand sewn hem

Firstly, just in case you think that some sections of the dress are faded, it is the design only, The design is n panels, one panel features the colour and each alternate panel is ghosted. The dress itself is in excellent condition for its age.  No notable flaws that I can see. I must note that the back has been altered to feature a low back, however the fabric remains on the underside of the dress should you wish to return to original form. There are also generous seams and the dress could be altered to accommodate an additional 4 inches or so.  We offer a tailoring service, see below for information. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
