Condition

Good, structurally 100 percent.  There are some remaining marks on the dress after a thorough dry cleaning. Surface, superficial stains on hem, and a faint stain near one arm pits, stains near armpits not visible when worn because of the way fabric sits. 100 percent wearable, has another lifetime with the right owner. However it is not perfect and would also be great for design. Faille fabric very strong, as well as silk velvet.
