This rare 70s Laura Ashley maxi dress is in good condition with no damage or staining. There is subtle dye variation you have to search to notice as it is lost in the print and very minor. Minor color loss on the inside only of the collar and cuffs. It appears the dress was altered by taking in the side seams. The zipper appears to be a replacement but is well matched and works perfectly. The dress presents flawlessly and is clean and ready to wear.
