The Mythical Beast has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She is dry clean only - do not wash, she will colour run. She is in good vintage condition, as with all Laura Ashley dresses she does have some minor flaws, she has a patch of light colour run to the very edge of her belt, very unnoticeable, a tiny mark to her skirt which is blended into her print well and will probably come out with professional cleaning and very faint underarm discolouration, this is almost invisible. Laura Ashley dresses with this print usually go for upwards of £400. These minor flaws have been reflected in her price.
This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear. But please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.
