VINTAGE RUTH CLARAGE HAND PRINTED ORIGINAL LEAF DESIGN DRESS FROM JAMAICA
A beautiful spring & summer vintage hand-printed dress by ruth clarage with a fabulous leaf design
The fabric is crisp & fresh after all of these years in a lemon shade with darker leaves - the dress looks as though it has never been worn - the color of the dress is much prettier than in the photos as
it was a hard color to capture - there is no fabric tag but feels like crisp cotton - v neck in front with wide flatter straps - covered buttons down the front - the fabric is hand printed & made in jamaica
- i love the square lowered neckline in back - princess seaming front & back for a slimming look - wide 3” hem in case you want to make it longer
Perfect for a cruise, pool party, entertaining or shopping this summer

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
The items are sold as we find them. We do not dry clean, launder, alter or repair vintage clothing and they should be cleaned or washed upon arrival. Please make your selection carefully & check the measurements as there is no return on clothing or other items.
