Condition: This dress is in good condition. A scattering of small pin sized holes along the right hand side sleeve near the sleeve seam that joins the dress, and a few along the main body of the dress to the other side of the seam in question, a few of these have been sympathetically darned. Very light yellowing along the left hand side armpit. A very light scattering of age marks and foxing throughout the skirt-line. These minor blemishes are not apparent as they are well concealed within the floral print of the dress. 
These minor issues are not apparent when the dress is being worn, and only visible under very close inspection.
