Condition: Excellent. Amazing condition considering the delicate fabric. Clean with no holes or wear. No noticeable stains. On close inspection there are some light brown stains on the underside of the silk organza, as well as one small pink smudge, but not visible on the outside of the dress. The accordion pleat inset actually runs across most of the front waist and the pleats to the far right and left have flattened out, but this is under the embroidered organza skirt and not visible [as shown in the photos].
