Fair. Strong and wearable, presents beautifully. Two tiny mends. Some missing sequin sections. Some small snags and pinholes. Many stains, water marks, faint circle stains. Because of the delicate nature of this dress and its gelatin sequins, I do not recommend trying to launder it. Clean by freezing or hanging in the sun. See photos.
