Jacket displays evidence of time and wear. The white yarn around the edges and some of the white applique are faintly pink from color bleed. There have been a handful of repairs to reinforce breaks in the yarn and there are a couple yarn blossoms missing petals or stems. Jacket is overall structurally sound with plenty of wear left and has been priced gently to reflect condition.
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
