CONDITION: The seam on the left collar could use re-stitching and there are some short seam separations at the waist. A tiny pull on the left shoulder from the embroidery (not a hole). Also some wear to the finish on some of the buttons, but the buttons and finish are white so it's not noticeable. Very good to excellent condition! Unlined so you'll probably want to wear a slip underneath.

**Due to the global pandemic, I've started using mannequins rather than live models. Since their measurements are all quite small, I occasionally must make slight adjustments to better fill the bust, or lightly clip a garment so that it doesn't slip. It's recommended to follow the above measurements for the most accurate sizing. Hopefully, this will be temporary and I'll be back to all-size real-life models soon.
