This stunning cotton maxi dress is at least 50 years young and certainly has the potential to make a statement for elegance when you walk in to a room. The bold vibrant colours and the feminine cut all point towards a timeless style.
A wounded bird, the yellow dye has tragically run from in some areas (shown) when it was washed in preparation for sale. We do believe this piece could be revived or corrected and enjoyed as the garment structure remains absolutely sound.
If you think this one is for you - the array of colours and easy shape will bring a certain joy to your dressing routine and provide you with so many wardrobe options.
