Aged gracefully. This dress is clean, structurally sound and ready to wear but does harbor a past. There has been a patch repair to the left elbow sleeve and the original side zipper which was missing teeth has been replaced with a similar 1940s zipper. Also of note is fade along the top and back of the right shoulder. Dress presents beautifully as a whole and has been priced to reflect condition.
