Embroidery on the pockets and hemline are just to die for, and check out that color-blocked pocket detail! Unlined but opaque, back zip + hook & eye closures on collar.

ESTIMATED SIZE: Small; this was originally a junior's dress so may be better suited for petite proportions.
CONDITION: Very good vintage condition with a few minor flaws to note: there was a moth nibble on the left side of the chest that I repaired, but it's still noticeable under inspection. There are a few tiny, light spots of discoloration that I couldn't even photograph well enough to see, and some of the gold thread on the embroidery is loose, but none of these impact overall wear. What a fun piece! 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: Tomato red bodice with black skirt and gold embroidery
