Condition Detail
Very wearable and overall lovely for its age, has two expertly reinforced threadbare areas (each about 1/2-inch) to the back jacket, one similar and smaller subtle repair to inner elbow of right sleeve, all hard to perceive; the buttons are original, a tiny faint gray speck to left sleeve's elbow, the label has crude stitching re-sewn to the lining, the jacket's lining has pale beige age dapples throughout that would be invisible when worn, the skirt has a very subtle 2 x 3 inch area just above the hem that looks slightly abraded likely from amateur stain removal, subtle enough to be worn without noticing it
