Very good vintage shape with subtle imperfections factored into pricing. Cleaned and sturdy. 75+ years old.

Dress: neckline is worn along back/rear edge and designer label shows its age (see photos), pencil point hole just above waist seam, subtle age toning at underarms within the print, not seen when worn. Jacket: creamy toning in the light parts of print, primarily on the lapels and collar, and two rhinestones missing from a button which I'll replace from my vintage stash before shipping! The busy print masks almost all of these things.
