There is no room in the narrow seam allowances to make this dress any bigger.
Good condition rating a 6 out of 10. There are many small orangish-brown spots in the skirt, mostly in the back. There is a gash in the fabric near the waist that has been repaired. The shirtwaist has a period repair at the shoulder and many pinholes and weaknesses in the fabric on the bodice front. They are not noticeable when this ensemble is worn with a slip beneath it. There is one small spot in the slik front near the second button from the top as seen in the second photo.
