These novelty print landscape dresses are much sought after. This one in particular is so desirable because it depicts so aspects of an English country seascape. This dress itself is in excellent condition for its age. No notable flaws that I can see. Tiniest bit of wear on straps but hardly noticeable. Belt loops but no belt. Just for information the straps are longer than normal, but easily adjusted to make the dress shorter in the bodice. Cleaned and ready to wear. Belt and crinoline petticoats for demonstration purposes only. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
