Minor evidence of time and wear. There is obvious areas of iron sheen to the rayon vest from having been pressed from the outside. This is visible in the photos and made much more apparent under the studio lighting. The sheen is not nearly so vivid under natural light. there is also a small hole in the vest near the collar as pictured. Dress is otherwise in wonderful and wearable condition with no other issues of note.
