Description

***Please Note: The vintage collar shown modeled with this dress is an accessory prop used here for display purposes only and is not included with this vintage dress. The last image demonstrates the sweetheart neckline collar of the dress.

The grass so little has to do,
A sphere of simple green,
With only butterflies to brood,
And bees to entertain,

And stir all day to pretty tunes
The breezes fetch along,
And hold the sunshine in its lap
And bow to everything...

Reminiscent of the classic, whimsical poem "The Grass So Little Has To Do" by the legendary literary poet Emily Dickinson, this 1980s teal green Expo dress elegantly captures the stunning shade of green, an emerald married with turquoise, that is so wonderfully appreciated in nature.

Shown here adorned with a vintage lace collar which has sold in my store (there is another similar vintage collar available via the link listed below), this enchanting sea green dress looks exceptionally lovely when accessorized with Victorian era themed embellishments like this collar; yet the dress displays an attractive high collar sweetheart neckline which is also delightfully eye-catching! Also featuring deep pockets, a feminine gathered waistline, and the timelessly elegant tea length hemline so admirably coveted amongst the lovers of women's fashions of a bygone era. Making a cherished gift for a refined, classy lady who treasures the romantic regency and modest styles of yesteryear, this darling vintage pine green dress would fancy the likes of Miss Emily Dickinson herself!

...And thread the dews all night, like pearls,
And make itself so fine,
A duchess were too common
For such a noticing.

And even when it dies to pass,
In odors so divine,
As lowly spices gone to sleep,
Or amulets of pine.

And then to dwell in sovereign barns,
And dream the days away,
The grass so little has to do,
I wish I were a hay!

In excellent vintage condition for its age, this flattering 1980s Expo dress shows very few signs of wear...making it a spectacular gift! This vintage dress appears to be practically pristine aside from a tiny, faint 3/4" hairline natural patina stain near the skirt hemline on the front right-side dress panel; there is also some faint areas of patina on the interior "Expo" brand label, however, fortunately both of which are hardly noticeable even when closely examined.

Measurements:
Size 8
Bust: 32" (fabric stretches slightly)
Waist: 27"
Hips: Loose
Length: 50"

The vintage peter pan lace neck collar shown modeled with this dress has sold, although there is another beautiful vintage collar with a similar style available, and it would also look lovely paired with this dress as an accessory. It can be found here in my store:

Etsy keeps your payment information secure. Etsy shops never receive your credit card information.
Payment can be made securely, quickly and easily via PayPal or direct checkout through Etsy. PayPal accepts both credit cards or debit cards.

At the time of purchase, please "Confirm" your shipping address.

I also take checks and money orders via mail. However, I most certainly prefer PayPal due to the convenience "for both the buyer and myself"; Etsy advices that shop's do NOT send out purchased items until payments are received.

If you would like to do a Lay-a-Way Plan, please convo me so we can discuss and finalize the details.

Returns and exchange details

Due to the nature of vintage (previously owned and/or used) items, many may show that they were once "loved" by someone else. Any imperfections that I see will always be noted in the individual listing’s description, and I will show a photo that gives a good view of the item(s). Please feel free to contact me with any questions before purchase.

Should a refund be necessary, as decided upon by both buyer and myself "seller", it will be for the item ONLY and NOT for its shipping charges. The item must be returned (at the buyer's expense) within 7 days and item must be returned in the same condition originally sent in order for a refund to be processed.

Refunds on insured items will need to go through proper channels for filing a claim. Photos of the damaged item and the packaging ARE REQUIRED for filing. The photos must be sent to me ASAP, which they may be attached in Etsy convo. Also, the Insurance Company will require the Buyer to sign and return an affidavit stating that the item arrived damaged.
