A beautiful and well constructed dress. So many intricate details, not the least of which is that sensational and unusual back skirt treatment. Fabric is high quality and unfaded and the dress itself is in excellent condition for its age.  No notable flaws that I can see, that might affect the wearability or presentation of the dress. The shoulder straps have been altered at one point and hand sewn in but not seen from exterior. Cleaned and ready to wear.
