A few minor repairs to note. Two of the rhinestones were missing (one by the arm pit and one by the side waist) leaving small holes that have been patched from the inside. The front bodice seams had been strained and in repairing these have been taken in a tiny bit causing small tucks where the seams arrive at the waist. The tulle netting has shredded in a few areas not visible when worn. There has also been a heavy repair near the zipper as pictured. Overall the dress presents well and is ready to wear.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
