=========================================================================

*Condition*
The dress is in very good condition. I found one pin hole and a light pull in the chiffon of the skirt that does not show up well as it is backed with fabric, there a tiny pull on the bodice that is also backed with fabric so it is not glaring, there are a couple of shadowed spots on the skirt that should lift with a cleaning. The hem in the back of the dress is slightly drooping from hanging for 50+ years, this should easily be pressed out when cleaned.
Price reflects these stated concerns. It presents beautifully as it is, concerns are only stated for accuracy..

*Size* fits like a small to medium

Measurements are:
bust:36"
waist:28"
hip:39"
total length:42"



I recommend that you measure an actual garment that fits you well and compare the measurements for the best fit.
Remember that the measurements measure the garment, not the person wearing it, leave 1-2" of ease for the proper fit.
