Modern Size Estimate: S/M
Sleeve: 6” from collar
Condition: Good vintage. Belt loop with no belt. Minor wear, creasing, lightened areas. Last photo showcases areas of fading. When the dress is worn, the faded areas are not that noticeable. In the photo, the light caught it just right to show that the overall coloring varies slightly. This dress has a beautiful sheen that tends to hide the inconsistency in color.
