Good vintage condition. Freshly cleaned and ready to wear! A handful of tiny-to-small holes that have been darned and are not noticed when worn; the most notable one is located on front of bodice behind one of the pleats so not at all seen when worn. The belt has been repaired and is wearable with care; the leather is worn in parts, mostly located on and near the buckle. About 6 tiny pinhead-sized dots on center front of skirt a few inches below the waist. The lining at the underarms has tears.
