 FABRIC/COLORS: Novelty weave plaid using red, black and white, for varying shades of gray and red, with an ombre lattice pattern woven into some of the gray striped areas - see closeup. I believe this is cotton, based on a fiber burn test.

TAGS: No tags at all. Dress may be custom sewn

CLOSURES: Metal zipper down the back

CONDITION: No stains, holes or tears seen. A previous owner hand stitched a seam repair on one side of the zipper placket at the waist. It's very wearable as-is, but you may want to reinforce it with machine stitching for added strength.
