Completely wearable 1920s cotton day dress with velvet trim and decorative buttons. Has one set of snaps at each cuff that secure a small to medium sized wrist (see sizing below), but they can also be worn open or the snaps could easily be re-sewn. There is also an adorable art deco appliqué at the left hip with multicolored beads. Slips over head with no closures.
A few pinpoint holes, some very minor surface marks that should come out easily in the wash, and a few sections at the hem that have been repaired so the velvet is missing (visible in rear photo).
