______ c o n d i t i o n

Minor evidence of wear. Dress had been dramatically taken in around the torso via a series of darts and seams. I let these all back out with only minimal evidence due to the shifting iridescence of the fabric. The center back seam however I took back in since the fabric had been notably strained along the seam and was visible when let out. This has caused the dress to fit slightly smaller through the torso but open neckline and gathers are accommodating. Dress is otherwise in wonderful shape, clean and vibrant, with no issues of note.
