Condition 

This dress has iconic Art Deco styling. And will fit a variety of sizes due to the bias cut, but no bigger than the measurements provided above. The fabric is in excellent condition, all i could see is a slight lightening along the right side shoulder seam, and the side seam has come undone slightly under the snap closures. The lightening can be seen in the last photograph, which also shows the gorgeous sleeve detail.  Apart from these two minor flaws the dress is in wonderful sturdy condition. Missing belt, I used a ribbon and buckle for the photoshoot. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
