Top Notch! Minimal evidence of wear. Straps have been slightly shortened 1/2 an inch by a previous owner but could be easily let back out. Red bow was possibly added but is accurate for the era. Dress is structurally sound with no issues of note.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
