Labels: only an illegible remnant and size tag remain
Fiber/Care: unmarked, feels like cotton with nylon ruffled dickey
Condition: the dickey's elasticized straps (which close with a hook&eye around your back) have lost their bounce. doesn't matter and won't affect wearability. just tie it as comfortable, tuck the ties into your bra, or snip the ties and tack the dickey to the dress. the original belt is missing, though we'd probably opt to snip the loops and go without (ours shown in the photos is not vintage and not included).
