This dress is constructed to highlight the wonderful novelty print. It's really beautiful!!  Also in excellent condition for its age.  No notable flaws that I can see other than the hem was returned to its original length at some point and a very slight line exists where the hem used to be,  but really hardly noticeable. The dress also needs a press stud to secure the bow on one side, the other is sewn. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
