♛The Condition

Very good vintage shape, though not perfect. There are some small scattered quirks that are only found under close scrutiny and don't detract from the overall look and beauty of this dress. I found signs that the waist seams may have been taken in then let out slightly: some tiny needle marks/picks in the chiffon. The back zipper is older but is a replacement, probably for a broken metal zipper, and was put in with dark blue thread. There's a couple tiny (grain of sand) holes hidden in an upper skirt pleat on the chiffon layer only, and a small mend on the undermost skirt layer at the hemline where there was probably a heel stick. Small amount of smudging at underarms that should disappear with cleaning. It sounds like a lot, but the dress shows very nicely and is a highly desirable style from this era. Price has been adjusted to reflect the quirks, and dress is sold as-is.
