      This dress has been dry cleaned and is ready to wear. There is a little staining to the neckline from old makeup, right along the edge of the v line and upper back of the neck. It doesn't stand out, but it didn't clean away entirely at the dry cleaner, either. There are light spots under the left sleeve. There is a dime sized spot, and two tiny smaller spots nearby, all at the mid right of the skirt. There is a tiny, pinhead sized cut with a bit of fraying below the back at the back right. I find no other issues to note! Priced with condition in mind.
