-Internally there are some signs of seam repairs/resewn seams, but these can't be seen when worn.
-Slight signs of wear, some small pulls in there crepe. Some slight lines along seams, possibly from ironing, and there are some faint smudges and slight marks to the skirt, shown in the photos. These are all very faint so don't detract too much when worn.
-The top covered button is a little bit dented.
-Not sure if hem is original, it's handsewn in. It may have been rehemmed over the years.
