This dress is in excellent condition for its age. No notable flaws that I can see. It appears that the waist has been shortened at one stage and could be easily let down again if you wish. Probably at least one inch there. There is also a generous hem, if dropped the overall length would be close to 40 inches. We offer an alteration service, see below for details. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
