Top notch! This dress came to me covered in rusty stains which after several days of intense cleaning I was able to almost fully remove. There is a small bit still visible in the blooms on the hem line. The dress had been taken in along the back bodice, one seam was out when sourced and I let out the other. This is faintly noticeable on the back but does not detract. There is also a 2" cut in the fabric that had been previously repaired as pictured. Dress has been wonderfully preserved and presents beautifully!
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
