Overall nice condition
A touch of light fade on one sleeve and a nip in the hem.
A gradual fade into the skirting.
Main issue is the rubbing on the shoulders and some on the skirting.
It looks like little threads coming out of the fabric.
I used my pill shaver and it removed some,
but it doesn't get close enough to the fabric.
Might be removable with a better shaver or dye over?
