Fair. Please note this is NOT in perfect condition so read the description properly and take a close look at the photos to make sure that you're happy with the condition of this piece. Perfect for a re-enactor who doesn't mind the issues.
- there are some seam repairs, one of which is patched on the revered
- a mark on the bodice and a few marks on the skirt - they have been spot cleaned but the marks have not lifted
- main issue is the loss of the dots in some places - mainly back collar, outer of both sleeves, under arms and a patch on the right skirt (guessing where a bag or basket rubbed) - please see the photos
