Vintage Margaret O'brien Dress For Little Girl Child Actress 1940's Purple :
I love Turner Classic Movies.I happen to be watching "Meet Me in St. Louis" with Judy Garland and there is "Tootie" singing her little heart out. Her real name? Margaret O'Brien.The tag on the dress describes her as the "MGM STAR".Guess it was ment to provide inspiration for listing this 1940's dress.This comes from the huge clothing collection that was my mother and grandmother's. It was started in the 1920's.(... still watching the movie, Tootie just threw flour in the old man's face on Halloween ...)This is a little girls dress in "Rayon Taffeta" as the tag says. It has accordian pleated trim around the collar down the front and on the two little puffed pockets on the skirt.The color is purple, purple purple.There are no rips, nor mend. I did see a spot on the front of the skirt, but as the rayon has a brown undercast,the purple it is difficult to see. I did try to photograph it for you.There are tiny moth munches right next to the top seam and one each on the puff sleeves. A tiny piece from the generous hem and a bit of fabric adhesive on the inside would cover them. I photographed them for you.Bust underarm to underarm- 26" top shulder seam 3" top of shoulder seam to waist 11" top of shoulder seam to hem 25"Like antique clothing? This collection of dresses and accessories is vast I hope you keep watching.If you have 5 or less positive response, please email before you offer, as I recently have had several winning buyers who felt paying was an option and not a commitment.
I accept PayPal, and ship within two business days, and often the same day as payment. I am happy to combine items when possible. Shipping for this item is for the continental US. International buyers please note- I do not mark forms as gift. I do not end sales early. I prefer but do not insist upon shipping Priority Mail for international sales as it carries insurance and can be tracked. Customs fees are the buyers responsibility. I do not charge handling fees.A word about my sales- I do not use reserves- for me, it is unfair to dangle a carrot in front of someone and then go "oopsie" just foolin'.I list at all hours to accommodate people in all time zones. If you are interested in an item and will be away from the computer, you might want to just pop in that offer and set your limit. (ie: life gets busy!)For my repeat overseas customers, I will hold onto your item for up to a month as you fill a box with other items you offer on. Then ship the filled box. This saves you on postage which will be affixed on the full box, not individual items. I just ask that you pay for each item as you win it, so as to not back me up. Just keep in mind you will still have to pay customs fees on each item.
Please remember almost all of the garments I sell are 120 years old to 40 years old. They were made for one individual long ago before the Big Mac was invented and not all bodies are the same. While I strive to be totally accurate in listing any imperfections, occasionally a small thing is missed. About a third of my customers are repeat customers, so they already know a great deal in a unique antique item. I hope you will too!
