A lovely tea gown in a mint green/ seafoam matte chiffon with white polkadots, fully lined in a pale green acetate, and fastening by nylon back zip. The shoulder is its fabulous feature: double straps narrow set with a racerback. Also the ruffle is excellent: a double layer, with a white pinstripe under the polkadots. Note the style--not close to the body at the waist, measurements taken accordingly. The only labels are the ILGWU (union) label, a "dry clean only" and a cardboard label from the store.
Measurements: waist: 32", bust 32", length 59"
STORY: The only thing we know about this in Marie Rottler's life is that she bought it in Aurora in 1978.
