In lovely vintage shape and a nice unusual twist on the classic cotton day dress. In great vintage shape with no obvious flaws - one tiny part of the cotton underlayer is exposed under the right armpit but will not notice when on.
Please note this dress has been photographed with a full petticoat underneath (not included) to show shape.
