_____ c o n d i t i o n

Minor evidence of wear. Faint discolor under the dress armholes that developed after I hand washed. I believe it is color bleed from the underarm lining but is overall not noticeable when worn. There is a small snag near the hem as pictured. The fabric on top button of the jacket is worn. No other issues of note. Dress is structurally sound and presents beautifully!
