Condition: Very good overall condition, no rips, holes, etc. However it would need a professional cleaning, the dress is clean, but it has some brownish marks that would require a dedicated wash. It is not dramatic, notice in the photos, a hard to see brownish mark around the collar, same in the back waist-line close to the zipper and in the lower back of the skirt a little bit too (view all photos). It also has a greyish mark close to one rose located in the side of the skirt (view photo).
