BRAND / MAKER: n/a
MATERIAL: 100% silk
CONDITION: Good! I did a lot refurbishment work –>
-Silk is a bit fragile, but I’ve reinforced many of the seams & dress is absolutely wearable with a mild level of care (you know, don’t go horseback riding in it! 😉
-Second-to-last photo shows the inside of the dress where the attached lining is rather tattered (could easily by cut out if desired) & a closeup of the Talon side zipper & a spot just above it that has been carefully mended.
-Last photo shows a small hole in the fabric & a bit of fraying at the bottom of the neck (I’ve reinforced the entire keyhole with a topstitch to prevent further deterioration); a small pull in the fabric on the back of bodice; a bit of pulling on a dart seam.
