Condition

Presents nicely, but has some imperfections found under inspection. Cleaned. 75+ years old.

At the beltline, there are two tiny holes and a hole in the exterior fabric that's backed by a secondary layer of the same print fabric underneath. I fused this from behind to add strength. A belt should cover the imperfections, but they do not stand out appreciably because of the busy print.

Low on skirt at the center seam there is a scattering of a few small holes. There's fabric inside on seams that could be used to patch or mend as desired, but I'm leaving it be because the print and the skirt's fullness go far towards masking any issues.

See photos. A great choice if you favor style and price in vintage over chasing "perfection." Green prints don't turn up as often!
