Despite its vintage nature, this gown is in very good condition. There are no stains, rips, or tears. However, there are a few minor issues to note. The hook and eye closure on the interior waist is incomplete, with the eye missing (easily replaceable). Additionally, there is minimal piling to the pink satin, barely noticeable upon close inspection. The sleeve cuffs of the pink satin have mildly discolored over time. While no visible stains are present, the hue of pink appears slightly darker. Please refer to the provided photos for a comprehensive view of the gown's condition.
