The dress will be made to your size, by hand, to Historical Fashion's exacting standards. Fabric is 60% wool, 40% polyester suiting in a plaid similar to the inspiration dress below. The bodice is fully lined; all seams are clean-finished. It features a fitted bodice with a flounce ruffle decoration and a pleated, full-circle skirt. It closes with a back zipper. The finished dress will be hand wash cold or dry clean.
