No notable flaws that I can see - has been worn but presents beautifully. The back darts have been opened at some stage to allow for additional room but can easily be returned to their original state. This adjustment only affected the midriff area, as the darts are intact at the waist and fall below the bust. Faint mark near front waist but it blends so well with the design that you would only notice if inspecting for flaws.
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.
Love everything about this dress. The fabric design is really gorgeous and so is the colour scheme. Also, look at that bodice treatment and the pockets too: dripping with pearls and rhinestones. Such wonderful attention to details on this dress. Please drop us a line if you require additional information about this listing.
