This 'India' dress is not sheer like most you see, perfect for fall the heavier weave enables easy wear with or without a slip. The center yoke is embroidered with a diamond pattern and flanked by brown velveteen panels that is also found on the sleeve cuffs. The tiny gathers at the bust create a beautiful fullness and draping all the way down. The orange flowers are a perfect contrast on the field of soft green cotton (blend?).
Condition: The top snap needs reattaching, see last image. Slight fading on the tops of the shoulders.
Pulls on over the head and closes with three snaps at upper back.
Bust 34" (might fall better on a smaller bust but that is for the wearer to decide)
