Condition Detail
Near-excellent, has penpoint holes as follows - 3-4 to far right bust, four to back right torso, two to left of zipper just above waist, a few beginnings of abrasions to the piped seams at sleeve hems, buckle is abraded as well, 5-6 small abraded holes to right front skirt a few inches below waist, largest is 1/4-inch and the rest are penpoint, in general these flaws are barely noticeable as the fabric behind the holes is red, and the chiffon is filmy which helps disguise it a bit
