Top notch! Dress displays minimal evidence of wear and presents beautifully. Chiffon is brightly colored and free from issue. There have been a handful of minor repairs to the matching sash. Please note that the zipper is not original to this dress but was added at a later time. I chose to leave it intact, though not era accurate, to prevent the further stress picking stitches would place on the delicate fabric.
Please don't hesitate with any questions or for additional photos.
