What a special antique dress, from the unique copper satiny color to the detailed smocking, this dress must have seen some lovely parties in its day! Not really sure of its history or dating, but likely from the '30s or '40s, based on what little provenance is known about it. Appears to have had a tag at one time at the neck line, but, alas, it is no more.

While this is definitely wearable, the amount of detailed work and its age could lead to a compromise in the piece's integrity if worn too casually. We are selling this as a display piece rather than for wearing due to the extraordinary smocked detail and age of the piece.

Excellent condition for its age -- the zipper even works! There are a few pinholes near the back of the neck line, and a bit of one side of the smocking at the waist is missing some stiches, but all in all, it's in great vintage shape. As you can see, it needs some tender loving care to remove wrinkles, perhaps clean it up, etc. We hope you are just the perfect person to give this DollFood dress the love and honor it deserves!

Approximate measurements when laid flat:
15" across right under the arms
12" across middle (but remember it's smocked so should stretch some)
17" across from shoulder to shoulder
The sleeves are each 5" wide at the bottom (but are smocked so should stretch
49" bottom to top
