    Nice, hard to find set. Overall good condition, but it does have a few issues. There is some overall yellowing / light staining from age - I tried to show it in the photos, but it wasn't showing up well (it's not too detracting and could still be worn or displayed as-is). No attempt has been made to launder it. A few small specks near the pocket. Light discoloration on the collar. A few pinprick holes on the waistband of the skirt. Small specks on the skirt. There is a small area on the hem that has come undone and just needs restitched. Th shoulder boards snap in place. The loops on the uniform for the boards look a bit odd.

     

    To be honest, this is probably one of my favorite women's uniforms of the war; it just has such a beautiful aesthetic to it. It was kind of hard to let this one go.
