Good condition with some signs of alteration, but presents beautifully.
-Zip has been replacedbut with an original metal zip. There is also some modern overlocking to some of the seam allowances inside, possibly to fix fraying, looks like this has been professionally done, to the neckline, by zip and waistband, but not other seams. Hem has been altered and shortened, hem has been let down again leaving a faint crease line along bottom edge. Remaining hem is short so can not be let down further.
