Description

Ankle length cream colored eyelet women's dress with elbow length sleeves. The dress has a yoke collar and a front button and hook closure. The dress is gathered at the waist and then falls into a two tiered skirt. The back of the dress has two vertical eyelet seams that run from the shoulders to the top tier of the skirt. The eyelet pattern is similar to a palmetto design often found on oriental rugs. Stapled to the inner right waist band is a tag with "SL 30795-9-1" written on it.
