Condition: Very Good – Noted minor flaws, easily repairable or already repaired, wearable as purchased. The blush silk underskirt in remarkable condition and the lace is in overall good to excellent condition.

Minor flaws: This dress is 85 years old plus and has sustained some damage, particularly to the sleeves. The areas of the sleeves and seams surrounding have 10 + pulls as well as 2 small pulls on the lace on the bust back and front. The larger pulls range between ½’’ to 1’’ and the smaller pulls are less than ½’’. Some of these were repaired many years ago. Most are not noticeable when worn (as you can see in the photos) as they seem to occur only in the small netting surrounding the floral designs. At some point the lace over skirt looks to have altered into the scalloped design you see now. In spite of these flaws, this dress is wearable and looks quite stunning. This appears to have been a hand tailored (no machine) piece. Message me for more detailed photos of dress.
