Very good vintage condition. Freshly cleaned and ready to wear! Back of lining's flared hem is missing; it is unclear if this was an intentional design or had been previously cut out for some reason; this is not seen when worn. A suuuper faint, very small yellow spot on the edge of the hem right next to the shirring at center front; not noticeable when worn at all. One tiny, super faint grey/blue spot toward hem on back of skirt right next to the right side seam.
