This dress has very narrow seam allowances and cannot be altered to a larger size.
Very Good vintage, especially considering it's age. Rates a 7 out of 10. While ready to wear, flaws to note include:
-The most wear to the fabric can be found under the arms of the blouse. They are not quite holes, but the threads of the fabric have been separated considerably. This is not noticeable while wearing.
-A loose thread here and there.
-There are several very small holes in the organza skirt.
-This two piece dress is most likely discolored throughout, but it is so even and this dress is so old and delicate that I decided not to take the risk with the weight of water while washing. I also think it can be appreciated for it's creamy antiquated shade.
