Details

Love me or leave me! This pretty dress from the '40s (by "Sofie Wagner") has some issues... But it's so lovely -- so light & sheer, and with a great cross hatch print in white on a lovely deep sea green! -- that I feel any flaws can be overlooked (if not fixed/better mended). No material tag, but feels like a cotton blend. Has a button up bodice (clear pearly dome-shaped buttons) and same fabric belt with buckle, tiny fold-over collar and pinch pleats at sides of the waist/skirt. Zips up side with metal zipper.

*Please convo if you would like additional pics.

To Note

The issues have to do with some mended areas and some staining. It appears that some sections of same material were inserted at the underarms (may have been an issue of fit with the original owner?). This is really not very noticeable when wearing. Also, there is a mended area on the lower part of the skirt where a patch of same material was sewn on the inside to fix a tear. This is slightly visible in that white stitching was used; however, it does blend into the cross hatch pattern.

As for staining, there are rust stains beneath some buttons. This really isn't very noticeable since it IS beneath them and therefore concealed. There are also some small rust stains on the skirt -- and the worst of these are at the bottom (can see in pics by enlarging). I have not tried to get these out, and hopefully they will come out. I can't see why not, with a good stain remover that's supposed to deal with all these issues!
