Size: approx US6-many 8s. Please check measurements against your similar clothing and bod. Note that the seams are wide enough for the accomplished seamstress to fit.

Note: Mannie is set to be approx 68inches tall (172. 72cm)

Condition: Very very good vintage. No tears, fading, mends. Under super close inspection, in bright light, we see 1) VERY slight lines at underarms, 2) darkened discoloration on lace panel, along part of hem and where folds in storage. We believe this is from the tissue used during storage as it appears to be surface, 3) a couple small holes in veil from previous fastening to hair. These would not impair wearability or impact under normal wear. See pics. Sold as is.

We did not clean this beauty ourselves, leaving it to next owner as desired and after the usual personalized fitting. It was stored very well and is quite clean, presents beautifully.
