Condition Detail
Looks exquisite at first glance, upon close inspection the bodice has a total of approx 10 tiny holes, some repaired, with a 1-inch subtle tuck at left front shoulder and the majority here and under right arm, all hard to notice, and 4 tiny picks to knit on bodice back; the skirt is bright and beautiful with subtle mottling from very mild screen print loss to the skirt; the belt buckle's self covering is half loose and its underside is half missing, this could be glued carefully or the belt buckle could be replaced
