Good condition. Some slight issue, but still presents well:
-Some spots of wear and repair: One small fray hole by the neckline. Two slightly larger patched holes to the back by the hem, these are pattern matched and due to where they are very noticeable, see photo. One small patech hole also to the side seam by the hem. All shown in photos.
-Some faint yellowing to the bodice, very hard to spot, as only really shows very faint to the polka dots. There are also some small areas with a faint yellow line above the hem, see photos.
-Neck zip works fine, but gets a bit stuck at the last 2". Perfectly wearable as is as it opens enough to get your head through.
