In surprisingly great condition when you consider its' age and usage. There are some areas of wear in the fabric, just a few unnoticeable holes we have found that add to its vintage character. This strong linen hemp cloth was made to last for generations, which indeed it has, although now after more than a hundred years of launderings , the fabric is more relaxed than it would have been as new and drapes beautifully.
The perfect smock for casual wear, a coverall for artist or potters
or simply as rural chic look
Callie is 5'11"
