How captivating is this dress! And so versatile, as it allows for a multitude of accessories. Here I have added a blue bow and corsage. Another alternative, would be to pin little forget me nots or violets to the appliques on the border and bust. But it really stands up on its own, both figuratively and literally!!  In fact it's so beautiful it would make a gorgeous wedding dress. The condition is excellent for its age, with no notable flaws that I can see. Smallest amount of light yellowing to the organdie trim and tulle in a couple of places but nothing of real consequence. Most likely this will lift completely with hand laundering. In this instance, I didn't launder it personally due to the horrible weather we have been experiencing of late. It's been dry cleaned instead, Sitting it in the sun to dry quickly really is the best whitening agent Please drop us a line if you require additional information about this listing.
