Condition

Condition:    The First:  The dress is in overall poor condition with numerous holes around the base of the dress, around the top and on the shoulder straps. Numerous breaks are being held together with old tape. Repairs on many of the breaks appear possible as most of the pieces are present, but have 'broken' apart.The Second:The dress is in overall poor condition with numerous breaks around the lattice work top with most breaks appearing to be able to be repaired as there appears to be minor mesh loss.  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.
