Waist 26", snug 27"
Bodice length 17 1/2"
Skirt length 30" and has 2" of additional hem allowance
Very good shape, lovely presentation. Under close scrutiny, I found two 1" mends at the top shoulder area of the lace (directly below shoulder seam), and a break in the mesh portion of the lace directly below this that's about the size of a grain of rice. The bodice is long, so if you needed to shorten it slightly, you could take it up through the shoulder seams and remove the mended portions of lace altogether. The other thing to mention is that that two front waist seams show light pulling. This is very mild and doesn't attract attention or compromise the dress, but just needs to be pointed out for accuracy.
