This dress is so chic and so easy to wear! Its neutral color and simple shape makes it a cinch to style and a breeze to slip into and go, and the buttons add a bit of sass and whimsy to an otherwise basic piece. Perfect to wear to work, for afternoons shopping about town, for evening cocktails, or for any other easy breezy event. A deeply wonderful dress that you will find yourself reaching for again and again!

This beautiful dress was custom made over 60 years ago and is in phenomenal condition -- it is truly a treasure and one of a kind! There is not another one like it in all the world!!
