Very good vintage shape. Cleaned and sturdy. 80+ years old. 

Light signs of her age and previous life. Minor pulling at underarm seams, tiny-tiny bit of fray on the edge of one shoulder yoke, 2-3 extremely faint ghosts of age freckles down in the skirt's print, couple tiny holes near hem (see photos). Still presents wonderfully and is truly a crowd-pleaser!

Note: in some photos you can faintly see the letters printed on my dress form through the dress's fabric, these are not spots or stains on the dress.
