Such an eye-catching dress.  Two points to note however. Firstly it has been taken up a fair bit and could easily be let down again. I don't believe the hemline will show. The other issue is that I have noticed a couple of felted areas that appear to be moth hole size. Probably a repair at some stage. I have shown the biggest one in the last photograph. Certainly not noticeable when worn and price has been reduced for this reason. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
