(There is a 5" hem on this)
Good condition with slight wear.
-A very slight bit more fade to the bodice than the skirt, not enough to detract.
-The arm and neck piping is a bit frayed/worn in places. Not overly noticeable and previous owner has treated some of these spots with "fray stop" spray. See photos. Similarly there is a bit of wear to a couple of spots on the waistband. Easily covered with a belt, but does hide in the print, so not easy to spot unless closely inspected.-One tiny darn by the top of the zipper, see photo.
Priced accordingly and sold as is.
