• Size is not marked - fits approx. size Medium (size 8)•

A few tiny issues: the lining is turning a red hue in spots on the inside (not noticeable when worn)
Someone has added blue fabric on the inside , over the edges of the boning to keep them from poking you.
One side seam is loose on the right side gusset - it is the second seam (it is seamed twice)
it is wearable as-is but you can see the first layer of stitching that is keeping the chiffon gathered.
Easy, easy fix for a good seamstress (I was scared to goof it up)
