but isn't perfect...
This has a few smaller holes - Thanks to the dark color they aren't overly obvious
2 larger holes (the size of a pea) one smaller and 4 pinholes - I think if you gather this just right , you can hide the holes in the folds
One larger hole in the skirting (about the size of a pea -10 inches above hem ,below both ruffles) A small pull / hole by the zipper
A watermark on the white of the hat by collar + The belt lining is shot - hole in tip of belt fabric / wear on the buckle
