Good Vintage Condition, flaws to note - Darts have been been let out in the bodice these could be resewn up but bear in mind measurements would then be reduced. Some small pin marks showing on each dart. Small marks one to the middle of the bodice. A mark to the back zip. These blend in with the brocade very well and don’t detract from the wearability of the piece. Priced accordingly. Ready to wear.
