Condition Detail
Very nice and probably never worn, has a hangtag remnant on the sleeve, the lining has a scant hint of age dappling in 3-4 places, the outer chiffon is excellent with occasional very minor misprints to the floral and slight greenish burnishing to the metallic gold screen print, all very slight and nothing a detraction
