Condition - very good condition. There are some old mends to the lace throughout that are not noticeable unless pointed out. There are minor breaks in the lace throughout. There is a small seam repair to the inner silk dress lining above the label and at the slit in the back bottom of the skirt where the seam popped. There is a small stain on the bottom of the inner silk lining. This cannot be seen when worn. In the detail picture I show 8 areas of lace repair and small holes in the lace.
