Labels: Vicky Vaughn
This juniors' label and the Toni Todd misses division were subsidiaries of R & M Kaufmann, Inc. The Kaufman brothers made high-quality, moderately priced ladies dresses in Aurora, Ill., beginning in 1920. Russ Togs bought the company in 1969.
Fiber/Care: no tags, cotton, washable
Condition: a few very minor glitches. a 2mm spot near the hem and a wider swath of subtle blue something across the back at belt level, a roughened/worn area near the button shown in the close-up, and very subtle fading. the buttons are authentic vintage glass replacements, and we've sewn a spare into the skirt's side seam for you, just in case.
*This sundress and coordinating belt are freshly laundered and ready to wear.*
