Considering it's age, this gown was in great condition when it first came to me. The lace on the sleeves, however, was not. Since they made the dress a little dowdy, I shortened them to a flirty cap sleeve.

This peach gown features:
- Ivory lace
- A simple, high neckline
- A swingy a-line skirt, with pleats that begin at the high hip (the hip bone)

I also swapped out the stained satin belt for a cornflower blue grosgrain ribbon, with one lace flower hand stitched to the back. The belt connects through loops on the dress, one of which had to be replaced, and hooks in the back.

This gown is fully lined, and has an extra facing at the neckline. The skirt is full enough for a simple petticoat!

Bust: Up to 39 inches (99.1 cm)
Waist: Up to 31 inches (78.7 cm)
Hips: Free
Length (Shoulder to Hem:) 44 inches (111.8 cm)
