      This dress is clean and ready to wear. It has been worn and washed in the past, and the print seems to be less saturated than it might have been originally (although it might also just be the contrast with the jet black bodice - perhaps it was never that black. I can't be sure. There is also some yellowing on the collar. I find nothing else to note!
