Excellent minty vintage condition with no significant stains, no tears, and no visible mends. Thsi dress is structurally so impeccable that it appears to have been just snatched off the rack! There are, however, some extremely light marks on the skirt (shown in the photos) that really do not at all detract from the magnificence of this piece; it is still extremely well suited to high end events of any kind. This dress has been cleaned by a vintage and antique garment specialist and is ready to wear! It has been priced with both its flaws and its virtues in mind.
