Condition: Fair wearable condition. Fair historic condition. The skirt has some pulls that are not raised but distort the print in places. There are some watermarks to the skirt lining and there is subsequent bleeding to the outer layer of the skirt. Honestly, these are both hard to notice when worn, truly. Metal has darkening. Signs of wear to the interior of the bodice that does not show when worn as it's on the inside.
