sheer navy blue cotton weave with white ball and column print. shirred shoulders, split sleeves and collar with white piping accents, and decorative molded plastic floral buttons down the front. the fabric possibly designed concurrently with the 1939 World's Fair held in New York, and its iconic Trylon and Perisphere architectural feature.

material: cotton
closure: none
label: none

condition: fair. as seen. a well-loved garment with overall wear/fade as well as a number of old mends and patches (done a bit roughly). seam stress and separation, and small holes.  wearable as-is or could use a little tlc, either way, it will have a distressed vibe. I've washed it, but otherwise left as-is. priced accordingly.
