The cuff links, while era appropriate are not original to the dress. The original links were absent when dress was sourced and I did my best to match them to the buttons. There was also a scrap of fabric missing inside the button placket. This piece appears to have been used to repair another area of the button placket as pictured. I replaced the missing piece with a white cotton so that its absence would not be noticeable when worn. Dress has been freshly hand washed and aside from the minor interior repair displays very little evidence of wear. Crisp fabric, brightly colored and presents beautifully!
