Dress Town - 1950's Wool Dress - 3/4 Sleeves & Pockets


This Dress Town Original dress was made some time in the 1950's and is made of a soft wool felt in a dark natural grey with the occasional white streak and and white cashmere detail trim.

This dress has lined pockets and a side zipper to make getting in and out a little easier. Fit and flare shape and wide flowing skirt, foundation garments and full slip are recommended to achieve the shape needed for a dress of this era, as well as to protect the skin against the natural itchiness of the wool fabric.

In fair condition for it's age and considering the natural material it is made from. Has some flaws as pictured which can easily be mended with a little skill with a sewing needle. One hole on the back at a seam, and some moth damage on the back of the white cashmere collar. Front appears to be undamaged. No other obvious damage noted.

We do our best to thoroughly test and describe the condition of every item we sell.
Returns will be handled on a case by case basis, and partial refunds will not be given under any circumstances.
