No notable flaws that I can see - a couple of pin dot sized marks in the skirt - really not noticeable, a couple of the darts below the waist have unravelled a couple of stitches - again minor (you can re-stitch if it bothers you). This dress presents beautifully with just the tiniest hint of general wear.
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.
The construction of this dress is amazing! The fan-shaped bodice and the partially stitched pleats create a wonderful visual effect. A true beauty! Please drop us a line if you require additional information about this listing.
