Presents well, a small scrub to skirt as indicated which isn’t dissimilar to the print on first glance! Looks like additional fabric panels have been inserted under the ams to increase size or perhaps they just didn’t have enough fabric in one piece at time of making? Not noticeable when worn, some rubbing to colour here also
