Of Note:

  • Two larger spots to speak of, near one another, that measure 1.5" and 1". They sit near the lower left on the front of the dress.
  • Near the chest, there are two very minor spots, measuring 1/16" each.
  • Interior fabric has some unfinished edges, not noticeable when the dress is worn.
  • The back hook is slightly higher than the eye. It absolutely hooks, but is slightly uneven, and leaves a small gap in the fabric.
  • Very minor loose stitching on the inside of the front, right dart. Not visible when worn, as the fabric hangs over the stitch.

Rating System

Vintage clothing is loved clothing. Sometimes the lives of our pieces have been exquisite, with great care taken to maintain their fabric, shape, and overall condition. In other cases, garments may have been somewhat less well-preserved, resulting in minor flaws, such as discoloration, staining, and/or tears. 

Whatever the condition, we want you to know it thoroughly.

To that end, the Reel Vintage rating system, based on an industry standard, is designed to give you as much information as possible before purchasing your item(s). 

  • Mint: The item has never been worn or shows virtually no signs of wear. Rare and pristine.
  • Near Mint: The item shows only light wear, with no blemishes.
  • Excellent: The item is structurally intact and shows some wear, but has no blemishes.
  • Very Good: The item shows wear and has some blemishes, such as light staining and/or minor flaws.
  • Good: The item is wearable, but may shows signs of deterioration (staining, non-seam rips, etc.). 

We are always available to our clients for questions and encourage you to contact us. We'll do our best to respond to you within 24 hours.
