Curator Notes

Good condition. Closures missing at back waist. Taffeta beginning to tear around back closures. Closures show signs of having been moved 1/2,'' which indicates the dress could have been altered to accommodate the growth of the wearer. Wrinkles have been released as much as possible without damaging garment.
