Good vintage shape, looks great but is not perfect. Clean. 70+ years old.

To note: there's a vague smudge or something to print at bodice to side of buttons, this visually disappears when I hold it against my skin or a black chemise, so I don't think it would ever be noticed when worn. It's accounted for in pricing.

Do note: dress is QUITE small and you'll need extra room to move around as it's a shirtwaist.
