Fiber/Care: no tags, cotton, washable
Condition: still looks bright and clean, but there is fading at the upper back. it also looks as if the original owner may have rearranged the ties to tie at the side, rather than in back, but we can't be sure. we added an interior grosgrain ribbon waist tie.
*This dress is freshly laundered and ready to wear.*
- because of its wrap construction, this dress can be adjusted quite a bit to fit a variety of sizes. still, we'd say it is best for a modern-day medium. please see measurements below and compare with something you own that fits you well. -
