Condition: Fabulous condition! It only has a couple of very small brownish stains (view picture) on the skirt but really not remarkable and maybe they will go away with a good cleaning product. The hem from the sleeves is hand-sewn and it looks the pre-owner altered the sleeve, perhaps due to a damage on the fabric or something, but the sleeve were probably a little bit longer. Very well done though not altering the look of the dress. No other problems at all!
