Vintage 1920s day dress in soft grey floral print cotton. Drop waist cut with a snap front bodice and snaps up the left side. Tiny turned collar, and pretty back yoke detail. Cotton super soft and has a washed look and feel after nearly 100 years. This dress is in excellent condition, only flaws to note are a couple small spots on the back hip and a little fray on the inside neckline facing, this is not visible when wearing. See both on the left side of the last photo.
