Absolutely charming vintage Bavarian style dress from the 1970s. Beautifully shaped with tons of details and embellishments. Wide, multicolored bands of embroidery on the sleeves and skirt, matching belt with double silver heart closure, scoop neck, silver button trim, bell sleeves, red and pink trim on the cuffs and hem. The inside is lined with a cherry red satin. Pleated skirt. Long zipper down the back.

One of those dresses that was beautifully made but has no tags: according to its former owner (a quite well traveled sort), it was made by a seamstress somewhere near the Swiss Alps, and brought home as a treasured keepsake, though hardly ever worn. Falls below the knee.

The material is a wool blend (possibly a wool rayon): smooth and midweight. The embroidery is tightly stitched in shiny floss — greens, yellows, reds, blues. Everything is substantial without feeling or looking heavy. Best fits a small to medium:

bust 36"
waist 30"
hip 52"
length 47" (bodice 17" and skirt 30")
sleeves 15.5"
shoulder to shoulder 15.5"

In excellent condition. Benefited from a trip to the dry cleaner, and came bright bright and supple. There are a couple of very faint spots on the side of the bodice that are very, very hard to see. Otherwise, this dress has no flaws. (And I'm happy to try and photograph them on request.)
