Closures: This dress fastens to the side with 3 metal press studs, and to the back of the neckline with a press stud.

Condition: This dress is in good vintage condition. I believe that the neckline has been slightly modified, it appears that there may have been a layer of tulle, which has since been removed. This isn't in any way noticeable, or affect the integrity of the dress.
Very light yellowing to some of the floral patterns along the back of the neckline.
A few scattered age marks along the back left hand seam of the skirt. Scattered age marks along the front of the skirt, and one to the bodice. Thankfully these are very well concealed within the daffodil print, and not overly apparent when the dress is being worn.

Washing instructions: This garment should be dry cleaned or hand washed in cool water.

Fabric: silk, sequins
