    Fabric:  Silk

    BEST FITS:   L/XL depending on how you prefer the fit   (see measurements)

    CONDITION:  Overall very good - excellent.  The dress shows light, normal wear and is extremely wearable (with care).  There are just a few extremely minor issues to note.  There are a few scattered, faint watermarks (the largest is pictured).  There is some underarm discoloration (see photo), but this is mostly lost in the gathering of the drawstring.  There also one small spot on the side (see photo).  Although the dress was cleaned, we have not spot cleaned these specific areas.  The dress presents beautifully and the few, small issues to not detract.  Sold AS IS.
