This is such an interesting little dress. Great for everyday wear, this dress seems to be made of a rayon blend. It almost has a sharkskin effect. It has a playful green geometric weave, embellished w/ little squares of chocolate brown velvet. The velvet also lines the collar, sleeves, & dropwaist "belt" detail w/ a floppy knot. There are darts on the bust which, I believe, were added in a later era. Metal Jolan zip, which, I believe, was also added later. Really interesting piece that is perfect for transitioning into cooler weather. Has been washed & steamed.
Issues: Overall very sturdy condition. There is slight discoloration under the arms. No holes, tears, snags, or staining to note.
