Vintage French black cotton dress with small white dots.
Buttons all the way down.
Beautiful details such as the pleats down the front and the cuffs. It makes it quite different form the work dresses I have found in the past.

No pockets.
Belt at the waist but something seems to be missing at the ends (see last photograph).

This is a vintage item so there are some imperfections: I have spotted two tiny tears on one cuffs, a couple of stitches undone in at least two places.
One small repair at the back. One part of the belt was repaired too (small threads visible).
One small stain inside the pleats at back of dress so hardly visible.

The pleats hide a large repair. When on the mannequin, it is not very visible (on the left towards the middle of the skirt part). The pleats are stitched differently from the other side to cover the repair.

It looks like there was a size label at the collar but it was cut.
