in very wearable condition. Pictures pretty much decribe it. Both the sleeves and front have crocheted buttons but the button closure in the front is purely aestethic. It does not close or button.Lovely cut to it especially the back which is why I chose it for the feature photo. No significant stains that I can find or tears. I would say a size 4. It measures 32" across the bust, 16" under arms and 36" in length. Ideal for a collector or to wear to a themed event or a summer party. Really stunning. I wanted something to contrast so I pinned up black lace underneath.
