condition: Gorgeous dress made of luxurious fabrics that deserves another chance. Dress has the usual tears at the underarm points that you find with these dresses. There is also a small tear right above the underarm seam on the front right arm that will need to be backed if worn. The lining is still good except for minor fraying right at the underarms. Back zipper seam is loose on one side. One large faint water ring on the back skirt, a small ring on the front and a couple small marks right near the hem. The eye is missing from the hook + eye above the back zipper. Please contact us for more photos.
