from Zoe Gross on 10/08/12: "Spent my shift today grooming this dress. It is made of two+ layers of gauze and lace (varies by area) with white satin appliqués on the skirt, bodice, waistband and back, and other decorations such as tassels. The dress closes with hooks and eyes in the back, and a heavy gold-tone belt buckle is attached to the waistband. The gauze has some rips in it, and contained the remains of many bugs and larvae that had presumably moved in to the dress, lived out their days and died there. I extracted as many of these as I could find. I also extracted four metal pins, all of which were stuck between many layers of fabric, which I hypothesize have remained there since the dress was originally constructed. Between two layers of the skirt, I also found what appears to be the tip of a cat or dog's claw. How this last item came to be in the dress is a mystery."



slip: neckline discoloration, esp. around shoulders; stains at hem.
