Condition: Vintage. Generally in good condition for its age with the exception of two major rips on the right back shoulder and right sleeve. The rip on the shoulder is approximately 1/2" x 1/4", the sleeve has a tear possibly from a hanger and is 1 1/4" in length. Both rips could easily be repaired by someone who knows what they are doing and there is extra fabric at the hem if a patch is required. In addition, there is some light fade at the shoulders, one threaded belt loop is broken, and the belt shows wear. This dress probably shrank over time since the belt is a bit larger than the dress.
