Condition - Good vintage condition. This little lady has been well loved - the back of the belt is cracked and worn and the lace covering on the buckle is lifting along the edges. She has some small nibbles in 2 of the silk godets in the skirt but they are hard to see with the lining behind them. There are a few small dark marks above the hem you can see if you look very closely and a small repaired rip along the hemline where a heel must have gone through after a night of wild dancing! Fear not, she still has many wears left in her if done with care and love.
