Labels: Roberta Faye an original by Saturn & Sedran, Inc.
Fiber/Care: no tags, wool, dry-clean
Condition: a few teeny moth bites in the jacket back have been darned. any remaining are so tiny as to be invisible (see photos). we moved the skirt's button back to its original position. we removed the collar's damaged outer layer of fabric, leaving the undamaged first layer and lace, which has slight discoloration that may lift with targeted treatment. the collar is likely older, and added after the fact, as it is only tacked on and could be replaced with any collar you prefer (lace, fur, faux fur, etc.) or removed to reveal the jewel neckline.
*We've given this jacket the museum treatment and a thorough steaming. it's clean and ready to wear.*
