Condition: This dress is in near perfect vintage condition. Light and scattered age marks to the dress, these are well concealed within the floral pattern.The green sash belt has age related discolouration throughout, and the fabric covered buckle has worn thin, shows sign of use with some holes to the rayon. These minor issues are not apparent when the dress is being worn, and only noticeable upon inspection. I would recommend changing the buckle of the waist belt.
