Dress displays evidence of time and wear. There are a handful of small holes that have been patched from the inside, one on the lower skirt back and the others along the shoulder. There is wear around the collar as well. Dress has been lovingly hand washed by me and cleaned up bright white with minimal fade to the spots. Overall dress is wearable with care and presents beautifully. Pictures do not do the fit of this one justice!
