This dress is in excellent condition for its age. Fabric is very crisp and the colours are bright and unfaded. No notable flaws that I can see, apart from the fact that the pellon stiffening was cut away inside the dress. Does not detract in any way from the presentation of this dress and only mentioned for full disclosure. Cleaned and ready to wear.
