Very good vintage condition. Ready to wear! One tiny hole in the mesh fabric behind the lace, located on right side of neckline. It appears that the back right vertical bodice seam and a small bit of skirt gathers were let out to accommodate a slightly larger waist; this isn't really noticeable when worn, unless you're looking for it. This dress is a true show-stopper, and a must-have for any purple lovers!
