Description

Ankle length voile women's dress patterned with brick red and white daisies. The dress has a simple scoop neckline with an attached handkerchief. The sleeves are fitted to the elbow then flare out in a bell shape. Under the left arm is a two button, one hook closure. At the waist is a band of brick red and an attached red velvet belt with two rhinestone clips. The belt appears to be a later addition. It does not match the style of fabric of the dress. The dress has a full flared skirt and a matching jacket.
