Good Vintage Condition, flaws to note - The Jacket is in lovely condition with a few nibbles and presents beautifully. The skirt has been heavily altered with an additional extra added to the waistband, new zip and seams let out to make the skirt larger. You could take this back in to wear as it once was if desired. We would recommend getting this suit dry cleaned as it has been in storage. Although flawed this set still presents beautifully. Priced accordingly.
