Condition:  Overall structure of the body of the dress is strong with numerous hand-stitches on the peplum hem having come loose. The dress appears to have been heavily worn with wear marks on the long train hem. Separation at the waist seam on the right back side. Four inches on stitches on each elbow have come undone, discoloration around neckline from wear as well. Lipstick spot on left peplum at neck. Discoloration and wear at center back train where ring is attached to bustle the train.  The stated overall condition of the lot is based on the assumption that the wear is consistent with age and use. As everything is sold 'as is', we suggest that you request a more detailed condition report and additional photo. This can be obtained via the INQUIRE button or by email at couturecr@lesliehindman.com. Condition is a matter of opinion and should not be treated as a statement of fact.
