Sleeve from underarm: 13

CONDITION: Very good over all, but there are a couple flaws that make this costuming in my opinion: under one arm, a repair of seams, and it is broken; also one tiny hole as shown by pocket. Also, a couple small "chews" near hem that are nearly invisible. It has snaps in the back of the neckline, wonder what used to be there. It would make a terrific secretary dress, ala " Mad Men".
