In amazing condition apart from 2 minor rust marks that may come out if you know the tricks..... I would guess that if the antique seam was unstitched then the top would be about the same width as the bottom.
The piece is enormous and i had trouble photographing it to do it justice as it measures a wopping 316cms in length approx.......... This would make an incredible vintage wedding dress/ veil or as it was intended to be used as a window dressing......... And the workmanship is astounding..........
