The buttons on the top part of the front have the appearance of mother-of-pearl. There are beautifully constructed darts in both front and back to enhance the shaping. The side seams have slits for ease in walking. The placket on the bodice and the collar are also very nicely constructed. The bodice is separately cut from the skirt and they are sewn together slightly above the natural waistline.
It is a gentle shade of red with white irregular dots (that is, they are not perfect circles). This is a soft, lightweight, silky feeling fabric. Please note that there is no stretch to this fabric.
Beautiful vintage condition. I cannot detect any tears, pulls, snags or stains.
