♛Condition Very good vintage condition. Cleaned. 70+ years old.

Noted: the inside pink collar has some fading and mild age discoloration, not seen when worn. It will stay closed if belted (I will include the pink sash belt it came with, though it's not likely the original belt). If you want to close it without belting, all you need to do is add a hidden snap at the front waist to secure.
