What a dreamy dream of a dress this is -- and in just shy of mint condition, too! Perfect for fancy afternoon gatherings and any especially special event, this dress is sure to garner praise wherever you go. It is quite sheer, and therefore will need to be worn with a slip; it looks marvelous over black as I’ve shown it in the photos, which really makes the colors pop, but looks just as lovely over white. A heavenly, artful dress for a heavenly, artful girl!
This stunning dress was custom made over 70 years ago -- it is truly a rare treasure and one of a kind! There is not another one like it in all the world!!
please note: slip is not included.

Excellent, nearly perfect vintage condition with no stains, holes, or visible mends. The ONLY flaw is a couple of teeny tiny pulls at the front side of the bodice, and these are barely noticeable unless searched for. This dress has been dry cleaned and is ready to wear. Absolutely miraculous for a dress of this age!
