Label: Handmade
Material: Rayon (sheer and opaque)
Condition: Very Good - this dress came to me in fair condition. I have had a seamstress mend several spots that had frays in the sheer rayon and seam splits. The top sheer part came to me and was photographed when it was somewhat yellowed (PLEASE NOTE: I have been able to soak the top of this dress and lighten the yellowed part significantly. The sleeves are almost perfect! and the only yellow part of the dress is the back of the neckline area - which is VERY faint. Yay for persevering with cleaning!) When worn in normal lighting, as opposed to photography lighting, the yellow is MUCH less than in the photos. This print is EPIC! and quite rare!

Era: 1940s, 40s, forties, WWII, War Era
