Condition

Very good apart from the covered buttons being very slightly worn. There is also a cleverly concealed old darn to the right hand front sleeve 2 1/2in; 15 cm. Also a small old darn near the cuff. You should be able to see from the photo.  There is the minutest of pale lemon marks close by, the size of the end of a pencil. A few damp marks to the hem.  The dress is clean and fresh.
