Condition: Very Good - inner lining has foxing marks, three minor pinholes are pointed out in the photos - one is on the neckline and the other two are on the middle bodice panel below the bust. It may have a bit of iron shine but it also could be simply the material when you turn it in different lighting because of it being a tri acetate and lined in white. This has not been cleaned but has no odors and would need just a quick cold wash.
