Good vintage condition. Ready to wear! Quite a few repairs were lovingly made to restore this gorgeous coat. On the chartreuse side: a hand-sewn self patch on right bust (it gets covered up by the ties but you can also add a brooch or appliqué over it if desired; some tearing at hem due to age of fabric, which was mended using traditional mending techniques; a few small spots on front left side; some minor fabric wear here and there, including atop the shoulders. On the forest green side: a repair atop left shoulder; some wear to the nap atop left shoulder. On the gold lamé: parts of the collar's edge were coming loose so they have been nicely stitched securely; some darkening in parts. Sold as-is and priced accordingly.
