Condition: Wounded, but strong and wearable. The dress has two small repairs at the skirt's center front, a few on the sleeves, and diffuse discoloration, mostly toward the hem. Jacket is in good shape, with a small repair to the lower left arm and fading down the length of the outer arms. The dress's hem is down, and we'll leave it to the buyer to hem it to her preferred length. There are thread belt loops, but no belt remains.
*This 1930s gown and jacket set survived our local cleaner's standard, non-specialty dry-cleaning.*
