The Zipper Saga
Shortly after I bought this dress, the zipper broke, like most brand zippers are inclined to do. I didn't have time to bring it to the tailor's before my meetup, so I did the one thing that I hate most about sewing: I took out the old zipper, and replaced it with a new one. This was a rush job, and some of the polyester lining was damaged in the process. Getting the original zipper out and a new one in was a truly awful experience, but it did the job. Unfortunately, for me, this new zipper eventually proved to be no less of a pain than the original one. It too, jammed, broke, and ate some interior lining fabric along the way -while I was still wearing it. In order to get myself out of the dress, this zipper also had to be removed. I have not bothered to replace it. As you can see in the proof photos, it's completely zipperless.

At this juncture, I am fed up with this dress, fed up with replacing zippers, and I want it gone from my life.

The Details
On the outside, this dress is in great condition. The dress comes with two detachable bows, and the original corset lacing. The major caveat is that it needs an intrepid seamstress (or someone who wants to pay a seamstress) to replace that broken zipper, and perhaps one panel of bodice lining. Once these issues are fixed, you'll never be able to tell that there was ever anything wrong with it. That said, the damage reflects the price.
Should you bid on this dress, you acknowledge that you are bidding on a damaged dress, sold in as-is condition. DO NOT BID if you don't want to receive a damaged dress. Seriously. If you bid on this dress, and then complain to me that it's damaged/missing a zipper and you want a refund, I will leave negative feedback. I've documented the damage pretty well in the photos, and have tried my best to detail the issues.

Shipping: - I prefer to ship Priority Mail in the USA. Flat-rate fee is $15 for large items like dresses, and $7 for smaller items like blouses and accessories. If I can get it to you for less, I'll do so and refund you the difference. - US buyers can also opt for Registered Mail with Tracking if you don't mind the extra wait, and general lack of insurance. - I prefer not to ship internationally, and will only do so if EMS or Registered Mail First Class International are used. Tracked shipping from the US is not cheap, and starts at about $30 USD. - If you are willing to take the risk on untracked shipping, I cannot be held accountable for your package once it leaves my hands, and will only accept payment for untracked items via Gift - Once an item is mailed and out of my hands, I cannot be responsible for it. Everything Else: - I only accept PayPal - All invoices must be paid within 48 hours, unless we have worked out a payment plan in advance - Failure to pay in a timely fashion will result in negative feedback, and I will re-list the item.
