When this charming dress and I first met, I noticed only the Charles F. Berg label and immediately fell in love. Here in Portland, Oregon Charles F. Berg was known for well made youthful clothing from 1921-1975 and this dress clearly fits that description. Sleeves are pleated at the shoulder and gathered at the hem and evoke the memory of Liesel from The Sound of Music.

Dotted swiss fabric has all the bumpy nubs on the inside with a floral print of green, blue and violet on the outside. Fitted shelf bodice, pleated skirt. Features built in petticoat of one thin layer of gathered tulle. We added another petticoat for fullness that is not included in this listing. Lacey trim at the neckline and bodice front with a velvet ribbon woven throughout tied in a bow at center front. Closes at center back with metal zipper topped with a hook and thread eye with a snap on the trim.

Lo the many labels!
