Condition: very good
An absolutely darling organza and lace dress, short sleeves and zips up the back. The organza fabric is pale blue over white lace and a lavender body. The satin cumber bun is lavender satin. The skirt lining is a paper-like fabric an is in good condition, though it is obvious this dress had a tulle petticoat that has been removed. The back zipper may also not be original to the dress, but I can't be sure. Structurally the dress is in near perfect condition with no tears, etc, but there is some faint yellowing to the organza, particularly at the bottom of the skirt. Priced accordingly.

The Birdcage offers true vintage items. This means that items were made or produced during the decade indicated in the listing description. Vintage items, unless otherwise indicated in the listing, have been previously used. Condition descriptions are included in the listing, and will detail any notable flaws or issues with the item.

Label sizing is also included if available, but is not a reliable system for sizing as vintage sizes run much smaller than modern sizes.
