Use belt to adjust to desired silhouette.

condition: good / very good. Fun, sturdy and very wearable day dress with some overall wear and patina. Freshly washed. Some specific flaws to note: several rusty type marks did not fully lift with spot treatment, one near right chest and two at lower front skirt. They have been lightly masked with fabric paint, but are still visible. See images. general faint age-related yellowing blends with pattern, one more notable water mark is mostly masked by a pocket. Fabric behind the outer top points of both pockets has been reinforced with matching fabric backing and a few stitches- these are points of stress and had small tears. A few scattered pinholes noted. One larger hole was visibly mended in the back. Blends fairly well with print, and is located near where the belt lays. Buckle is a very light plastic, has a little "dent" in it. The list seems a bit long, but all told no single flaw draws the eye, and with its playful print and flouncy skirt, the dress assimilates them well. Accompanied by a 5” x 3” piece of matching original fabric, for any future mend projects! (please note: images added for condition purposes aren't always color-correct!).
