Condition 

This dress is in good condition for its age but does have some issues. A couple of tiny mended breaks in the lower back skirt, along with a little iron shine and some of the seams might need a fix as there are a couple of breaks in the cotton thread.

These issues are not noticeable when worn, as the dress presents beautifully, neverteless it has been priced with these defects in mind. Cleaned and ready to wear.
