The main condition issue with this dress is in the armpit/ sleeve areas. Repair stitches have been made here where the fabric is damaged/ torn.
Right sleeve cuff has tears in fabric. Stitches loose on the waist seam. Discolouration in a few areas. Repair stitches made in a 1cm area on the left side of the bodice, just behind the crossover; looks like there may have been a snap fastener or hook here. Left side belt loop missing.
