this lovely, lovely garment features exquisite handmade
workmanship that just takes one's breath away.
this dress was acquired from an elderly woman who
found this dress ( and a few others I have ) in the closet
of her first married home on the cliffs of the Columbia
River Gorge, she stored this dress carefully for years.
the dress is made out of a soft, burlap colored cotton/wool
with a hand made lace bodice. the collar, fold-over cuffs,
and waist are adorned with hand embroidered symbols that
are a intriguing mystery to the vintage lover. there are 16
self-covered buttons trimming the apron, or even corset-like
front bodice, and 12 of the same down the back of the dress,
these are for decoration only. the bottom portion of the dress
features a unusual and very pretty horse shoe shaped cut out
trimmed in dusty rose embroidery.
approximate size xs/s
condition: excellent/like new. the only thing to be of note, is that many of the original hook and eye clasps appear as though they have been replaced by modern ones. there are a few of the originals. this dress shows no wear at all, appearing to have never been worn.
