Very good vintage condition. Freshly cleaned and ready to wear! The bottom orange and pink flowers along the front hem are much lighter than those at the back hem; this may be intentional in the design or have faded from where the dress was stored/worn; I only noticed this upon inspection for the listing, not while photographing it. No other issues to note! This dress presents beautifully and is a total stunner!
