A truly epic 70s piece, a real collector's gem! Labeled Sz 13.                  
MATERIAL - Cotton  
CONDITION - Very good condition. Has some cosmetic issues that are listed below. There is some slight discoloration at the underarms. My eyes could be playing tricks on me but I think there is a very slight/faint blue cast throughout the dress (I only see it under certain light when I shift the textile). There is an area of crochet trim on the left sleeve that has a manufacturing flaw (a small section that didn't get stitched down). On the right side, there is a tiny spot, there is also a tiny spot near the left side close to the crochet trim. Going back to the right side near the crochet trim is another spot but is much fainter. The hemline has several areas of spots and ding/discoloration from age/use/wear. The print does a good job of hiding these flaws but they are present. Please reach out if you have any questions or need additional info.
