This original dress is at least 50 years young and in slightly wounded condition. The fabric alone is a great example of the unique beauty of vintage fashion however there is a mark on this piece that could easily be taken out by a shortening of the garment!

We believe the delicate tailoring, attention to detail and, the quality craftmanship from eras gone by is worth repairing.

This is a flattering winner 'as is' or taken up. Make it your own style with flats in summer or boots in winter!
