Dress in very good condition, bolero in good wearable condition.
Some faint colour mottling to the cotton, this is mainly to the bolero and mostly to the back, but also some small areas to the hem of the skirt and one small bit further up on the skirt. A few small faint marks to the back of the bolero and to the hem of the skirt, and one tiny worn spot to the back of the hem of the skirt, and one small pin hole / scuff to the shoulder of the bolero. I think this presents very well, nothing of it is particularly noticeable. Please see all photos!
