This fresh, crisp and darling dress has been taken up from its original length - but not to fear! All original material is still at the hem. I actually love it at the current length. It is bright and cheerful, wit ha black or yellow, pink-red, light blue, green, black and cream. The cotton is especially crisp, that fresh feedsack texture. It offers short sleeves, full pinch pleating at the hem, and a button front closure with gold buttons. This item is estate fresh - it was probably shortened to accommodate a pre-teen. You'll love it this summer!

Bust: 37"
Waist: 27"
Hips: 60"
Length: 35" - can be let out to 38.5"

This dress is in very good condition. It is crisp and sturdy, well stored for many years! I cannot find a single issue to note. Ready to enjoy!
