Good vintage shape, displays beautifully as you can see. This set has some small flaws that I don't feel detract from its beauty; I would keep it if it fit me. Price is adjusted to reflect the flaws. Just above the hem on the front skirt, there are three faint tan spots, one the size of a pea and the other the size of beans. The back lower skirt has four very faint spots, one the size of a dime, and the other three about the size of BBs. The back bodice has a freckle of rust, and there are two more small rust spots at the very edge of the back bodice at the side seam. The bolero is in excellent shape; there are small buttonholes on each side of the lapel that may have once had strips of fabric to tie it closed (guessing; to match the shoulder ties on dress). This dress set has been carefully hand-washed, and it's bright and clean -- the white is very bright! It's pressed and ready to wear.
