Top Notch! Buttons are not original but in keeping to the era. There are areas of reinforcement to the open work which tends to be delicate. Dress is freshly cleaned and ready to wear with no other issues.

Please note that the color is more muted than it appears in these images. I had a difficult time capturing the teal/turquoise hues for some reason and ask you to refer to the closeups for the best representation.
