Fits like: xs
Material: rayon crepe
Condition: Very Good Vintage: While very strong and wearable, there is some flaws only noticed upon close inspection: Very minor color bleed on the green (see third to last pic) , 1-1/4" patch to back of shoulder, and a super tiny one on the other shoulder. (see last collage picture) Some ghost stitching at waistline. Small brownish spot on top of left bodice. (see second to last pic) Tiny age spots at side and back of skirt, very minor and faint. Faint spot at back of right sleeve. None of these take away from the awesomeness of this dress!
