Good wearable condition but not pristine, however still presents very well as is.
-The outer hem to the lace been redone, and not professionally, though it is not very noticeable, the hem is a little bit uneven but this slight enough not to be very noticeable. The inner lining looks like it has the original hem but has some sections that have been folded up and and taken up slightly with a machine seam, see last photo, I think maybe where it was peaking out under the lace. The way this is done isn't very neat but as it is to the lining, it's not so noticeable.
-A couple of very small breakages in the lace and a couple of small, very discreet, darns under the arm.
Still looks beautiful on and priced to reflect the condition.
