It is with great emotion that I received this beautiful dress. Of course, it is marked by time, but it is no less sublime...

From quick response time to my many questions to turn around time between purchase and shipping...things couldn't have gone smoother! I do have to say that the description of the dress did not do it full justice! For being 111 years old the dress is practically flawless! I would definitely buy from her again!
