Condition Detail
Never worn, freshly soaked and washed here at Vintage Vixen to remove age toning, there is a subtle H-shaped area at the front from fading along the original fold lines (most visible at the head of one seahorse in main photo), and a similar slight fade at back neckline crease, a tiny speck of a hole to lower front waist, all slightly noticeable when worn; the label has a few small abrasions

*chest, waist & hip measurements are the maximum inches that will fit the item, so your body measurements should match these or be slightly smaller
*chest, waist & hip measurements are not actual fabric widths
*to get actual fabric widths, add two inches at the chest, one inch at the waist, and two inches at the hip
