Good condition, structural sound, but with small marks (the most noticeable being on the front hem of the skirt and a faint mark to the lapel) as well as some faint colour mottling/fade which is less noticeable. There is also an area of slight fade/discolouration on the sleeve, see photo.
Has possibly been rehemmed.
