Condition 

Excellent apart from color bleed/transfer to the dress. I would say that the dye wasn't fixed properly initially so the dye lifted when washed. I have put it through a dye-fixing process and colour run lifter and it appears much lighter and may go away with subsequent washes. Overall, general colour fade due to the unstable dye. The last photo shows what I'm speaking about and there is a patch at the back bodice that you can see in the photo of the back of the dress. Priced accordingly.

Please note that 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.
