Generally excellent vintage condition.
This dress is in great condition for its age, although it has a couple of minor issues. It is slightly faded but you can only tell by comparing it with hidden fabric. You cannot tell at all when worn. There is a tiny alteration at the tip of the bodice (shown in the last photo) where it was taken in slightly but you would never know. Two tiny pin dot spots at the base of one pocket again hardly noticeable. Front darts partially let out near waist. Please note everything I have mentioned is minor and do not detract from the presentation or wearability of this beautiful dress, but nevertheless I have priced it accordingly. Shown with a ribbon belt and crinoline for demonstration purposes only.
These are vintage items that have been used and loved over the years, As such, they may display slight evidence of their age. Any notable flaws above and beyond this will be highlighted here.
