Lovely fitted bodice with cute little matching bow at the waist, a huge hem sweep of 29....... Some are small pinpoint/pinhead sized, and then there is a larger-dime sized- stain on the lower front near the hem that one feels'hard' and it goes right thru to the inside of the gown... It is easily hidden in the folds of the gown (see pics).. Also in pics see a small pull or bite in the taffeta/satin gown.
Lastly, there are 4 square snaps down the back BUT one of them is missing a half-of-the-snap. The velvet wrap/shawl has matching floral print material on the inside & truly looks like new...One area shows some'bleeding' (see pics) which is very common for this print. The velvet itself is perfect (no stains, no rubs, no holes, no odors).. No pics of the hoop slip let me know. BUT it's hidden and does a great job of poofing up the gown as you can see in the pics..
The garment has been with adult collectors only and is truly a wonderful classic set of your favorite Cissy. Even with the age related flaws, this ball gown will definitely be the centerpiece of your collection... Please refer to pictures and please let me know if you have questions.
