Very good vintage condition. Freshly cleaned and ready to wear! A few sequins/beads missing here at there, the most "noticeable" are shown in the last photo; there are thousands and thousands of sequins/beads, so the ones which are missing aren't noticeable unless very closely inspected. Scattered pinholes in the lining, mostly located on back of bodice; a couple small holes in lining, one on back of skirt and one on back of bodice. Super minor discoloration/yellowing at left hip and part of left sleeve inseam.
