Product Description

From the eclectic estate of a vintage clothing collector, a well-known and stylish lady in Historic Riverside, California -- we acquired over 250 pieces from her collection, all pre-40's, to pass on to new and loving homes. All items were well cared for, and have not seen much light in over 30 years.

A lovely Summer day dress- fine cotton, I believe it is called lawn, that has some sheerness- will need proper undergarments. Slightly off-white with a sunny tinge. Snaps along part of waist and up bodice side as shown in photos. Looks to have Edwradian elements and could pass for Titanic style dress, but I think it is actually very early 20's- not quite drop-waist and not high waisted like earlier teens style. I'd date it from 1918- 1924. It should hang rather loosely, not tightly. 

Condition is good with no major holes or stains. Several decent repairs have been made. There is some slight separating of fabric, mainly along a seam here and there. Underarms look good. Dress could be worn as is. 

Check measurements carefully.

A NOTE to REMEMBER, Disclaimers and Such: IF YOU ARE NEW TO VINTAGE: Welcome! But A kind word about vintage items in general - they are often One of a Kind and unique items, symbols of more stylish times.... That is what makes them so special. They should be treated with respect and preservation, as they are disappearing fast. With that said, Please keep in mind that they are just that - vintage - and unless indicated otherwise, they have an unknown history. Therefore, please don't anticipate that they will look like new unless that is specifically stated. They will likely show previous use, wear, possibly loose threads, small marks, spots etc. that is acceptable to most lovers and buyers of vintage items and are not considered flaws, but character! Please don't hang them on wire hangars or wash them like any new item. I suggest gentle soaking in Oxi Clean or specialty dry cleaning. Please take care of your garment.
I do my best to point out any flaws and state the condition issues as thoroughly as necessary, you can be sure. Please see my long history of Ebay feedback to rest assured you will be put first!
