For a dress around 90 years of age it's pretty fabulous. Strong and sturdy with only a couple of extremely minor things to note: one circle has a few missing sequins (new ones can be added or existing ones removed, tiny pinhole only noticeable when held to the light and a dropped hem that needs to be taken back up to your desired length. No slip with the dress. All in all, in excellent condition. Worth noting that the crystal pleating allows for a larger size than the measurements given. Cleaned and ready to wear.
