Her full length sleeves are edged with slim cuffs with small press stud fastenings.
Her waistline is cinched in with fabric ties, on either side of the central pointed panel, that ties in a bow along the back of the dress. Her simple skirt boasts 4 panels, creating an iconic 1930's silhouette.

Please do not expect perfection, unless stated so.

Please make sure you check all the measurements of the garment before purchasing. Vintage garment sizes are not the same as those of today.
