Good condition. Presents very nicely but on scrutiny has had some alterations, though this is hard to see when worn. Hem has been resewn, possibly shortened but still has a good generous length so I don't think this detracts. Zipper I think has also been replaced, but with an original vintage metal zip in keeping with era. Previous owner has also added a running stitch to the underarm, I think to keep the interfacing fabric in place.
