From the 1960s, a kelly green jersey dress with princess seams, A-line skirt, gently full sleeves, and narrow V-neck detail. Unlined, but smooth and not itchy. Closes with back zipper. Union made in the U.S.A. Looks very 1940s, but it's definitely from the 60s. From the centuries-spanning and always stylish Jamieson estate.
Note that the actual color is a deep, rich kelly green and is not yellowish.
