Very good vintage shape, minor imperfections picked up in its lifetime that don't stand out appreciably. Cleaned, stain-free, and sturdy. Nearly 80 years old.

To note: like most early woolens, she's not perfect, so see photos for some close-ups -- little old mend on a sleeve, wear on back neck buttons, little hole at waist (covered if belt is worn), a tiny mend and a small hole hidden tucked into a skirt pleat. The perfect silhouette and covet-worthy charm are what's noticed, when worn!
