1940's floor-length dress with dramatic ruffled back and calico/geometric print. The entirety of the back skirt is covered with tiers of ruffles. Ruffled boat neckline. Fitted bodice. Short sleeves are gathered at cuff. A-line skirt with long ruffle at hem. Side metal zipper. Unlined.
Condition: Very Good. A few spots on the ruffles- one that is on the neckline and one that is on the back ruffles; they are easily concealed by being made into a tuck as there is so much volume in those areas. Small mend in the underarm just above the zipper. Small tear at shoulder seam concealed by ruffle- easily repaired. Small tear at side seam at bust. Crude repair at right underarm.

Condition: Very good with some stress to the darts at the back neckline as well as some holes at both sleeves' cuffs. I would recommend having the sleeves shortened by 1/2" to fix this. Because of the repairs that are needed, this is reflected in the price.
