ESTIMATED SIZE: Small-Medium. Please note the off-the-shoulder sleeves are pinned on the dressform and may lay differently on you.

CONDITION: Very good vintage condition with two faded marks from what looks like deodorant on one underarm; they've faded considerably under my care and seem like they will continue to do so with further cleaning -- mostly hidden due to sleeve. There's a small darned hole at the back of the skirt, pictured. There's some iron shine throughout the garment, but it naturally has a bit of a sheen, so this isn't particularly noticeable. Please keep in mind this is a vintage garment, which means minor signs of wear are to be expected. Any significant flaws are always noted in the description. All garments are mended, cleaned and ready to wear unless otherwise noted.

COLOR: Black

MORE INFORMATION: By Hess Brothers. No materials tag, but appears to be made of a heavy, slinkier crepe. Dry clean only.

PLEASE NOTE: Black Cat Clothiers cannot accept returns due to fit. Please compare the detailed measurements noted above to one of your garments that fits you well. Additionally, all of our clothing is pre-owned and vintage/antique, which means each piece may feature minor signs of wear, as noted in the description. To learn more, please view our store policies.
