My Most Favorite Dress

To date this dress is my most favorite of all the ones I've personally come across. Everything about it speaks to me. The color of the dress itself, the contrast of the white embroidery and smocking on the deep blue, the embroidered design, the style, and my list goes on and on. I have just listed it in my Etsy shop but not without wearing it a couple of times first. Each time I wore it people stopped me to soak in the beauty. Women would pause as they touched my arm to stop me to look at the detail. Every time I would proudly stop and enjoy watching their expressions, quite similar to the first time I laid eyes on this darling!!  She is from the 20's or 30's and is in wonderful condition. Only a couple of tiny issues. One of the shoulders has a couple of tiny holes and on the front near the neckline there is a very small white spot. On the back near the top of the pin tucking there are a couple of repaired small tears. Below are photos of the little flaws plus the overwhelming beautiful details of this classic piece.
