For the most part, the gown is in VERY GOOD condition but does show vintage wear.

The neckline needs the most attention as the facing needs to be stitched and reinforced. Easy Repair. (pic)

There is a yellowed splash mark on the hem. Could use a special DRY CLEANING. (pic)

Minor underarm yellowing.

Minor tearing in the lace itself. Small 1/2″ vertical tears are showing up on the neckline area.

As a result of the minor issues, the condition is  Good to VERY GOOD. Very wearable AS IS. Needs only slight TLC to bring to perfect condition.

Sold AS IS.
