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!
