Very good vintage condition. Freshly cleaned and ready to wear! There are some raised bumps on upper back of bodice below the collar, likely from the concealed interfacing coming a bit loose from the fabric, but this does not affect the wearability of the dress at all. Two minor thread pulls in the fabric next to the top and bottom buttons.
