Very good condition, I didn't note any holes.  There is some pinkish fade to the sleeves on the sides and a faint whitish smudge below the waist on the front.  Fade didn't show up well in photos but you can see it somewhat in the side view. Otherwise only very minor wear.  Fabric and seams are strong, embroidering is in excellent condition.
