This is a fun and playful silk maxi dress by Mary McFadden for Jack Mulqueen from the early 1980s.
We especially love the pattern mix of multi-colored flowers and vertical colorful lines. The base color of the luxurious silk fabric is purple, with red trim along the large ruffled neckline and tiered skirt ruffles. The ruffled neckline and can be worn off-shoulder or as a scoop neck!
The waistband on this easy to wear summer dress is elastic, and it comes with the original signature Mary McFadden tie belt. The belt can wrap multiple times, and is fashioned like a cushioned fabric tube. There are side slit pockets and keep in mind that the neckline is fixed with no elastic, so if you want to wear it off shoulder there isn't any stretch.
