Fair but very wearable. There are a number of old and more recent repairs, none of which detract from the beauty of the garment. A former owner has completely restitched all the seams, there are a few tiny puckers but very minor. Two holes in the top front have been patched and covered with a lace flower which blends in nicely. A third darned patch high on the shoulder is hidden beneath the lace. There are also two darned patches on two frayed spots at each underarm which have reinforced the area and are well camouflaged. The fabric at the edge of each button is starting to fray, the top button is missing. A few holes near the hem. All damage and repairs shown in the photos.
