Excellent. No notable flaws that I can see.
Love the design features in this dress, it is so elegant. An ideal colour to accessorise with, here I've used red but so many other colours would provide an excellent foil to the dress. Rose corsage for photographic purposes only. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if you require additional information about this listing.
