Condition: This dress is in loved vintage condition. A cluster of small darns to the left hand side of the front of the bodice. An area of wear to the rayon mix along the base of the cowl neckline, this appears as very small and light holes. A pin hole to the left hand side yoke. . Two small areas of wear to the central panel of the skirt, above the hemline. A small darn to the back left hand side of the bodice near the armpit, and 2 pin size holes to the back of the bodice .
This dress has an ombre effect to the pink rayon mix fabric, this is due to prolonged exposure to sunlight. We feel this adds to the charm of this piece.
These minor issues are not overly apparent when the dress is being worn as they are well concealed within the drape of the fabric and beauty of this piece. This piece has been priced accordingly.
