Dress displays very minor evidence of wash and wear. Red printed fabric is vibrant and clean but the black ric-rac is slightly faded. There were tears to the fabric at the neckline which have been repaired by taking the neckline in with seams along the tears. This is not immediately noticeable when worn but can be discerned when up close and looking for it. The yellow button is a replacement and not the original "Swirl" button. Dress presents beautifully with no other issues of note.
