Very good condition, minor wear. I believe this dress was altered a long time ago as it has a very deep hem and there are some extra stitches around the zipper and some different colored thread inside. Nothing particularly glaring but it does have subtle signs of alterations, though all seem to be reversible if desired.  There is a spot at center front but it's hard to see as it's in the tucks below the hips.  Some faint pindot spots on the bodice, also not too noticeable, see final photo.  I think these would all come out or lighten with a soak which I have not done, only a dry clean. Priced as is but I didn't note any holes, fading etc. Fabric is sturdy and ready to wear.
