This classic shirt waist day dress features a fitted bodice and pleated full skirt in autumn shades of brown, deep, dark maroon red and white.
The fabric is a jacquard weave of a crested and crowned federal eagle design, which looks like embroidery, interspersed with vertical skinny stripes: these vertical stripes creates a flattering and slenderizing visual effect.

The current buttons are self-covered, however 2 are flat and one is domed; we recommend switching out to coordinating buttons instead. It appears that a previous owner used the back neck facing to cut a button cover from.
Other than the buttons, this is in excellent condition, freshly laundered and ready to wear.
The belt and necklace are not included.
We love to wear comfortable, classic day dresses like this for a fun day of vintage shopping and lunch with the girls!
