This is such a lovely dress, simple yet striking. Being deadstock, the fabric is crisp and strong and the colours remain vibrant. In fact, it looks as if it travelled in a time machine as it's in such good condition. Absolutely no flaws that I can see, othher than a pin dot rust mark where the pin was that attached the swing tag under the armscye. Please note, I haven't laundered the dress as I wanted to preserve the original presentation for its new owner. I'am sure the marks can be lifted but they are so tiny the size of a pin (entry and exit point). Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
