This dress is in great condition for its age. No major flaws that I can see, apart from a couple of light spots and some seam stress to bodice. The spots blend into the fabric quite well. The two stressed seams can be run-in slightly if desired. Priced with these issues in mind. Cleaned and ready to wear. Please drop us a line if your require additional information about this listing.
