Very good vintage condition. Jacket has been professionally dry cleaned and the skirt has been hand-washed. There are a couple suuuper faint spots on the skirt that are only found upon very close inspection; they are not noticeable while worn at all. A handful of very tiny areas where the top fuzziness of the wool has worn off, but this isn't noticeable and does not distract from how lovely this suit is!
