A few spots on the ruffles- one that is on the neckline and one that is on the back ruffles; they are easily concealed by being made into a tuck as there is so much volume in those areas. Small mend in the underarm just above the zipper. Small tear at shoulder seam concealed by ruffle- easily repaired. Small tear at side seam at bust. Crude repair at right underarm.
