Its real silk and not taffeta. There is some holes front is minor there is a few small holes in spots. Back has a few small ones then few bigger ones(not huge) on the bottom before the hem starts. The biggest one on the side under the arm area its shown in the close up also not a huge tear but bigger than the other ones. Because of the amount of the material the real tiny ones you will not see I had to take time examining it and spreading it out to see them.Its also antique silk so these flaws are expected. The lace trim has some small holes in it as shown areas shown in the photos not many holes. Minor aging soil and aging spots.
The pink overall is still very nice and bright. The lace is aged but not dingy. Back eye hooks are there have some looseness, Needs to be ironed.
