Great vintage condition, presents wonderfully and has subtle, normal signs of her age. Cleaned. 60+ years old.

To note: there's a seam inside the (rather complex) skirt that may have come open, though dress can still be worn as it is now. Mentioning for full disclosure.

A real bells-and-whistles knockout, just like the photos.
