This is a lovely short sleeved dress with a fold flat shirt collar neckline. There are no fabric labels but it has the appearance of textured cotton. It fastens at the front bodice with pearlised buttons. There are swirls of embroidery and beads to the sides of the front neckline. The waist is seamed and the skirt flares to an A line. The dress fastens with a side metal zip and there are soft shoulder pads which could be removed if required.
