This is a over dress, made to wear over a under dress. Could be used as bedroom wear. It is white lace with long sleeves and pearl like buttons running up the front. There is a snap at the neck and the skirt portion is full length.It is 1940's. For it's age the condition is great, I find no damage. The lacy fabric is very soft. It measures about 30 inches at the bust and waist is about 23 inches. Length from shoulder to floor is 60 inches.
