Overall great vintage shape. Cleaned and refreshed gently. 65+ years old.

There are a few vague, subtle streak marks on the skirt that follow the bias weave of the print...possibly related to the original manufacture and/or printing of the fabric. See photos...the imperfections don't "read" when worn due to the skirt fabric volume and busy print.

Tiny seam mend under one arm, not visible during wear.
