Condition: Excellent. The dress, slips, and pantaloons are all made out of a fine yet sturdy cotton organdy, with a lovely drape that is light and billowy, with just the slightest tinge of aging that gives it that genuine antique look that you can't resist. There are some minor areas of threading and thinning in the fabric on the dress in particular, but overall the pieces are lovely, and with no garish damage that might detract from the beauty of your doll of choice. Lovely presentation and authentic look and feel.
