excellent vintage condition


condition disclosure:
there are a few small spots of vintage wear/rub on the fabric.
a few pin holes here and there.
faint water mark spots most likely removable with a dry cleaning
all these issues are camouflaged by the natural light or shimmer of the fabric.
pictures available on request.

crinolines were added for the pictures. highly recommend the addition of your own petticoat/crinoline. there is a mesh underskirt that adds stiffness but no tulle for fullness is sewn into this dress.
