This dress presents gorgeously and is structurally sound, though should be worn with care. Because of the nature of the textile, this dress has not be cleaned and it is not as fresh as I would typically like. The lighter marigold fabric does show some age. Three of the buttons have been replaced and the fabric is beginning to pull off of another button.. There is a quarter sized patch on the top of the left sleeve. There is a very small hole on the same sleeve that was previously strengthened with a net fusible. Because of the size of the sleeves, neither of these issues show when worn. There is a small split on the shoulder that we strengthened with fusible. Each section of collar was made with two layers of chiffon. On the left back collar section, one layer has some weakening, and on the right back collar section, one layer has a small hole. This is only seen when looking very closely. The belt buckle shows some wear. The skirt has a couple teeny tiny fabric pulls. Despite all of this, this dress is gorgeous and utterly rare and unique. It is priced with issues in mind and I find no other issues to note.
