---- Details ----
Label: Sous Le Signe De Paris
Fabric: Silk blend taffeta
Condition: Very good.The dress presents beautifully, it is sturdy and perfectly wearable. It just has minor issues worth to mention: the bodice has been altered a bit at some point. This dress was clearly smaller. There are still marks of two darts on the bodice at back that had been removed. This is very faint and almost noticeable unless you inspect the piece closely. One of the sleeves has a small mend, close to the elbow area (size 0.2" - 0.5 Cm aproximately). The bodice presents a few pin holes at back, on the shoulder area. The handle of the zipper is partially broken, but there is a small piece of the same fabric of the dress attached and it works perfectly.We thought that it is not necessary to replace it.
