Very good vintage condition. Professionally dry cleaned and ready to wear! A few small areas where the nap/pile threads (top fuzziness, not base weave) have worn off in little pinhead-sized spots; see last photo; located on center back of bodice, center back of skirt below waist and toward right hip,  and a handful of tiny ones on front of bodice. An area toward back left hem had some stains which mostly came out after being dry cleaned, but the nap/pile is a bit shiny compared to that around it; does not distract from how gorgeous and well-made this dress is!
