Good. There are 2-3 pin prick holes in the chiffon at the back of the neck. There is fraying, wear and some small holes patched to the seam facing along the top and bottom seams of the waistband, and along the zipper. I recommend finding a belt to cover this area, or wearing it with the ribbon sash provided, because otherwise it's a really beautiful dress.
