There are no zips as they hadn’t been invented yet. Instead, there is an elaborate set of poppers and hook and eyes which allow access to the dress from the front. These are carefully concealed along one of the overlapping bodice panels that intersects with the horizontal modesty panel. The hooks and eyes are hidden on the waistband by an integral belt.
Condition wise, this is extraordinary for something of its age. It is extremely wearable and there are no faults of any note. We see one well executed L shaped repair to the muslin only and it is fresh and ready to wear. Best fit for up to a UK size 8 or US 4.
