Labels: Dorine Liebert
Fiber/Care: no tags, rayon crepe, dry-clean only
Condition: not perfect. some spots did not lift with dry-cleaning and are likely permanent. the two worst are above the top button and at the left wrist. The first is concealed by the neck bow and the second would be hidden completely if the snaps were moved such that the cuffs closed in the standard manner, rather than snapping on the interior, "French-cuff" style. We can do this for you. Just ask. There are a few additional, inconspicuous spots. There may be a few sequins missing (not obvious). Priced accordingly.
*We've had this 1940s blouse professionally dry-cleaned and it's ready to wear.*
