Very good vintage condition. Freshly cleaned and ready to wear! There is one super tiny pinhole on front left bodice just below the shoulder seam, and another pinhole on front left of bodice a few inches above the waist. A minor vertical streak of color fade down back left side of skirt, which isn't really noticeable unless you're looking for it (I only noticed while writing this listing - it's from my personal collection and I never even noticed it while I wore it). The red finish on the silver-tone metal buttons has mostly worn off though some of it still remains. One tear (about 1.5" long) at right underarm has been nicely repaired and isn't noticeable when worn due to the location and the busyness of the print.
