Good but it has a number of repairs. A previous owner has added two adhesive patches, one on the low back, one hidden in the ruffles. Another stitched patch to the fabric beneath the ruffles. A previous owner has also added a few rows of stitching for reinforcement along each side seam. Three very small holes, not noticeable. A couple of tiny spots on the ribbon trim. I added the bow at centre back to cover a gap in the ribbon trim. Like the best garments of this age, wearable with care.
