★ CONDITION ★
Absolutely marvellous - the only issues to note are that the ends of the pink sash tails are water marked and a bit grubby from trailing on the floor, with a few other marks further up, one that sits on the waist but disappears under the folds. It might also benefit from the waist sash being stiched a bit more to secure the ruched up gathered effect, whilst attaching to the waist at the back a bit more securely too, you can see areas were it has pulled at the dress underneath and left a teeny hole - see all photos.
But apart from that it's splendiferous.
Vintage sizing is very different to modern day sizes, they usually are at least 2 sizes smaller depending on the era of manufacture. So to ensure a good fit please go by the measurements provided. I measure the garment laid flat edge to absolute edge then double, which give the maximum, you will need to measure your own clothes to compare sizing
