Condition: This suit is in near perfect vintage condition
Condition of the skirt: a few very light areas of wear to the knit near the bottom part of the skirt where the fabric was worn thin. The lining of the skirt conceals these with the backing, when it is worn.

Jacket: A small moth hole to the front right hand side hemline of the jacket. There is some wear to the pearlised buttons, where the pearlised paint has worn off over time and exposed a clear button. 2 pearlised droplet beads are missing from the embellished area, and there are a few small impression marks under certain droplets where the pearlised paint has worn slightly to the fabric. These minor issues are in no way visible when the jacket is being worn

These minor issues are not apparent when the suit is being worn, and only visible under very close inspection
