Condition

Very good vintage shape with minor scattered cosmetic imperfections factored into pricing. Cleaned and freshened. 75+ years old.

Imperfect, but dang if she isn't still hot as a pistol.

A little hole near a tuck in the shoulder; the tuck itself conceals a larger hole. A pinhole in an armpit.

Rear skirt has two small holes on a gore and another area lower down that has a scrape and a small hole. Please examine photos. Wear a half slip and nobody will know...this one comes with the dress clip and the belt as shown, and just has so many killer features!
