Curator Notes

Good condition. Fabric covering buttons are disintegrating, one button missing. Wrinkles have been released as much as possible without damaging garment. Ghost bustle has been created under the peplum at back to create proper silhouette. Fabric has shattered at neckline. Minor staining on bodice.
