Good wearable condition, a little bit as is with some wear and repairs, but still wears and presents well:
-The corners of the button holes have been sewn up slightly, see photo. It is also possible that the buttons are a replacement, they look a little bit more modern to me, but nicely matched to the dress otherwise.
-Zipper has been replaced, but with an original metal vintage zipper, nicely colour matched. It has left some faint signs from the old seams along the sides, see photos.
-Some small fairly discreet marks, scattered about, see photos. There are also a couple of slight faded streaks to the lower back of the skirt and some slight streaky fade to the upper back of the bodice , see photos.
-One tiny pen tip sized darned hole to the centre back of the bodice, also shown in the photos.
