This item has been worn several times and was a well loved and used piece of mine. It is very comfortable, can be worn with or without a petticoat and styled in many ways. It shows some signs of wear, including some piling and a light stain, but still has lots of life left in it. I bought this at an event where the designer was present and she explained to me that she hand dip dyed part of the lace a light lavender color to bring as a special item for the event, so this item is one of a kind. I love the long dangling hands that come from the flower on the chest.
This item is worn and shows some signs of wear. There is some slight pilling around under the arms, and some yellow spots on one of the cuffs and on the lace hem. I think these are actually intentional and part of the design, but I cannot remember if they were there when I bought this several years ago now, so I noted them in the photos. Gramm items are often designed with a distressed look intentionally, so the unfinished edges on the brooch area and the hem are intentional and not defects. The fabric of this top is very stretchy and extremely comfy!!
