Top Notch! Minor evidence of wear. I found a pin head size grey mark on back of collar and there is some brown, possibly rust, spotting inside the back of the dress. These are not visible when worn. The matching belt has sadly stiffened over time. While still wearable it may crease or crack over time. Dress is otherwise structurally sound with a brilliant hue. No other issues of note.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
