This is pretty much my dream dress.
It's one piece and has an inner bodice which fastens with hooks and eyes, so I would call this a wrapper or house dress.
The bodice has four boning channels in the front. The outer bodice does not have any closures at the middle, but the fabric overlaps.
A couple of hooks and eyes could be added if desired (let me know, and I can do this for you, no extra charge), or a brooch can be worn to keep it more securely in place.
The black cotton has a subtle design that I can only describe as looking like little coffee beans!
Oh, and it has a POCKET, which I forgot to photograph, like a goof. The pocket is on the skirt, positioned a a bit to the back of one side.
PS - all of the jewelry as well as the boots that I'm wearing in the photos are also available for sale and listed in the shop :)
+++ Measurements +++Measurements taken with garment laid flat, double for bust and waist.
+++ Condition +++
Very good antique condition. The fabric is strong. This piece is wearable with care.
Some fading to the lining, some very minor wear along the bottom hem and along the closures inside the bodice. This dress was very well taken care of.
You will receive this piece clean and ready to wear!
