    At first I thought it might be from the 80s, but when I got it home and gave it a closer look, now I’m not so sure. It reminds me so much of that other I posted recently. The lace is old and rather crisp. I don’t think I dare try washing it. All the seams are unfinished and not pinked, and there isn’t even a hem. Maybe it was homemade? It has little tulle shoulder inserts and cloth covered buttons with what looks like twine loops. The skirt starts very low down, almost at thigh level. Not a sign of any tags or labels. Thanks very much for your help!
