label: no labels
condition: selling this piece as-is. The dress itself is in very good condition for age. The silk charmeuse sleeves are shredding at the underarms, but can be removed to make dress sleeveless. Not noticeable, but some beading is missing. A couple of satin buttons have been lost also. Price reflects issues.
