    Overall very good vintage condition, corresponding to age, with light signs of previous wear - There are couple of minor pinholes and a few pulls to the fabric - the most notable at the centre back skirt (pic 9) .. Some light wear to the fabric covered cuff buttons.. Also some light "line" marking to the centre back - visible in pic 7 .. No major flaws, a beautiful dress that just oozes vintage charm
