FABRIC/COLORS: This novelty print - done on a cream background - looks spare at first glance, but the longer you look, the more you see. It depicts an urban park, with trees, a gazebo/bandstand, park benches, shrubbery and curlique metal chairs. A few of the chairs have human figures sitting in them. Most of the print resembles a charcoal drawing to me, in black and taupe-y gray. The splashes of pink suggest springtime blossoms. The fabric is a light to medium weight crepe. Based on a fiber burn test, I believe it is a rayon/acetate blend.

CLOSURES: The bodice closes with six small self fabric covered buttons, plus that cute tie at the neck. The waist fastens with a pair of snaps, and there is a 6" open placket below the waist. There are threaded belt loops but no belt.

CONDITION: No stains, holes, tears or other issues noted.
