Great vintage condition, presents impeccably! Cleaned + disinfected; smells fresh. 75+ years old and solid.

To note: a few things that won't be noticed when worn. I try to capture everything, and I use very bright studio light to find these things, not "regular" lighting

-two pea-sized ghost spots on the full skirt, so faint as to be only be found with intense direct light and close scrutiny...I can't even get my camera to pick them up in normal indoor lighting, lol

-sides of skirt may be slightly faded, but if's very subtle and well within the range of normal aging

-a few rust freckles tucked up inside the lining's shoulder (wire hangers, grrr), not seen during use
