Description

This dress is sooo sweet! Just looking at her makes me want to eat pretty pastel macarons while listening to Lana Del Rey. This dress is in a crisp ladylike lavender cotton, with 4 rows of white lace cascading along the pintuck detail, and a sweet bow at the top. She zips up the back. Some minor imperfections that need to be noted. There is a tiny brown spot in the front right side of skirt. An even smaller brown dot on back right side near waist, but these marks get lost in the folds (didn't notice till after photoshoot). Lastly, she needs a little stitching at back waist near zipper, see pic 5. Easy fix!

Here's a little history on label:

Betty Barclay was not an actual person, but was just a name made up for this mid-priced line of ready-to-wear dresses. The company was owned by the Jonathan Logan company, one of the largest clothing manufacturers in the USA. In 1955 German textile maker Max Berk acquired the German license to make Betty Barclay dresses for the European market. In 1972 the company was bought by the German branch, and it is still in operation today.

Measurements taken flat, please double:

Bust 17"
Waist 16"
Length 35"
