Top notch! Dress has been beautifully preserved, freshly hand washed and is very wearable. I sourced this from a theatre collection and there is a single 2" durable repair, if not the most beautiful, to a tear on the back left torso. The repair easily gets lost among the busy pattern and was done by the theatre seamstress to hold up to repeated wear. No other issues of note.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
