Very good condition. Zipper has been replaced but with an original metal zip from the era, some small signs of old stitching and slight wear around the zipper, but nothing noticeable when worn. There are two small grey pen tip sized marks to the side of the back of the bodice, see photo. And two even smaller pin prick sized marks on the front of the skirt, see photos. Neither particularly noticeable when worn.
