Excellent vintage condition. Freshly cleaned and ready to wear! The tag situation is interesting - the blouse and skirt both have sewn-on tags that say "Sherrod King", whereas the skirt also has satin hanger straps with the Vera Maxwell label; my guess is that this set was lovingly handmade by someone named Sherrod King and they sewed the hanger straps from another garment into the inner waistband. One tiny, faint blue line (pen maybe?) toward hem of skirt, about 1.5" long, not noticed while worn.
