Fiber/Care: no tags, navy fabric feels like a nylon blend, plaid feels like a slubbed cotton blend, probably with rayon / tag says hand wash, but will probably be fine in a net bag on the gentle cycle
Condition: very good, but not perfect. there's a small, invisible mend at the top back shoulder, and a few holes and discolored areas (see photos, may lift with careful laundering -- we'll leave that to you) on the cuffs. price adjusted accordingly.
*This dress is clean and ready to wear, but could benefit from an additional cleaning.*
