The coat is on excellent condition for its age. No notable flaws that I can see, perhaps some slight crushing due to it being stored for ages. I am sure this will reduce with subsequent cleaning. Although, to be quite frank, hardly noticeable now. The dress might need a hook and eye above the zipper to secure. Cleaned and ready to wear.
