Mom's Golden dress with white flowers


This is another sheath dress it must have been mom's favorite style since she retains so many of them. 

The details on this dress is that it is sleeveless and have 4 cloth covered button accents on the front of the dress.

chest 37
waist 32
neck to hem 39 inches

It did have issues with one dart being split but I fixed that.

It needed its hook re-sewn as it was about to fall off and an thread eye made I have done that to it too.

This dress does have an issue with the zipper mom placed a safety pin over the teeth of the zipper.  This was to keep her from passing the spot where the teeth have blown out.  I did not repair that as that takes reconstructing parts of the dress and I don't feel like I have permission to do that to it.

This is s fully lined dress looks to be hand made.

The photos my sisters originally saw.  This dress is still in original state has not been dry cleaned as of yet.
