This vintage dress has been carefully looked after and is in very good condition for its age. A couple of lighter small spots on skirt but get lost in folds and sheen, you really have to look for them specifically to see them. The hems on both sleeves need reinforcement, as they are unravelling, an easy fix. All in all, a beautiful and well presented cocktail dress.
