Condition 

Excellent vintage condition.

No notable flaws that I can see, other than the velvet ribbon has stiffened pile from multiple washing over the years.

Comment 

Fabulous rose print on this beauty. The close-up photo of the skirt is the closest to the colour.

The listing is for the dress only and does not include any other accessories that may have been photographed with the item. 

This item has not been pinned to the dress form.

Should a circumstance arise where we are unable to post within this timeframe (eg we are away at a fair) we will contact you immediately. Please note that our postage charges are based on standard international and domestic air packages - all with tracking. If you want to upgrade to express postage or require insurance, please contact us prior to checkout and we will adjust the rates accordingly.
