Dress displays evidence of time and wear. There are a smattering of very faint pin head size spots across right chest (as pictured) and a series of more noticeable spots across the back shoulders (also photographed). Also of note is minor underarm fade and repair to pocket corners. The dress originally had attached shoulder pads of wool batting that did not survive and is missing its top button which is not noticeable with collar turned down.
Dress has been freshly cleaned and is structurally sound. Despite the afore mentioned wear dress presents beautifully! Feel free to contact me with any questions or for additional photos.
