No flaws that I can see. It is unworn and retains its original crispness, brightness, and sheen. This dress was part of a collection of a supplier's inventory items that had been in storage for many years.
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.
A beautiful dress in stunning condition. The colours are so vibrant and the design is typical of this period's preference for dropped waisted silhouettes - providing all the fullness required but retaining a slimline waist and hip area.
