DETAILS -- please read carefully
The bad:
- shattering/tears at jacket right shoulder and left (only) elbow, dress center bodice and underarms
- patches of self-fabric throughout damaged areas
- a couple of little spots here and there -- nothing major

The good:
- fabric from the uppermost seam of the dress on down is sound and can be repurposed (or just replace the upper bodice for a wearable dress).
- entire back of the jacket, as well as the double-layer embellishment and ruffly cuffs, are in good shape.
- original Mother of Pearl buckle can be repurposed (although the belt is wearable, see below)
- dress is freshly cleaned

The kind of ugly:
- the belt was a wreck, so I created and hand-stitched a new backing to make it wearable. took forever!
