This 1920s showgirl costume is in fair to poor condition. Heavy wear throughout. A little bead loss on the skirt. The main issue is that the silk dress is delicate and worn. There are a few untidy period mends. I've reinforced some of the weak spots in the bodice with fusible interfacing. Wearable for a photoshoot or something similar but needs to be handled with care.
