It is in very good condition, very clean with no wear, odors. There is some very light soiling at the very bottom of the garments which shows up more on the coat than the dress. There are a couple of very small light yellow stains on the coat. This dress and coat were well cared for, saw little use and was well stored over the years.
This is a wonderful early 60s formal dress - pretty color, beautiful quality shantung silk and striking sequining, beading and rhinestones......this is a high quality evening ensemble....
