excellent. this suit appears to have been hardly worn --however, it was stored in a closet for 70+ years with other items that were a bit smelly. we've treated it AND have had it professionally cleaned but it may need additional treatments to remove any lingering odors. one tiny pick at the left breast (possibly from a brooch) and the skirt is being left un-hemmed. price significantly adjusted accordingly.
