Skirt: great shape. Jacket: a couple imperfections accounted for in pricing the set the way we have. Cleaned. 40+ years old.
To note: I didn't see this at first, but the former owner (this was a one-family estate piece) made a mend to a horizontal tear under one arm. It feels sturdy and is well-disguised, backed in same fabric. I went back and fused it invisibly from the inside to further assure that it's sturdy.
The collar of jacket has some faint darkening on one edge toward the back. I don't know what that's about, but it's worth the mention.
Set still shows and wears wonderfully, and would be in my closet if it fit!
