Say Hello to Anemone, she is a truly super rare and precious cotton prairie dream by Laura Ashley made in Wales, circa early 1970s. This beauty is honestly a spectacle and absolutely one of the most gorgeous blue Laura's we have had. She has stunning silhouette, with a double layered skirt, which has a kind of apron feature and is adorned in the most stunning cotton lace trims. She has voluminous sleeves, a high neck, pintuck features at her bust and also comes with her original waist belt. She is gorgeously crafted, like all Laura Ashley dresses, in a delicate sort of tear drop style paisley style print, which I have actually never seen before. Anemone is truly so rare and special, I cannot wait to see where she is headed today!
This girl would work on UK sizes 8/10 best, could also easily work on a UK 6.
Bust - 34" possibly 35"
Waist - 28"- 29"
Length - 57"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Anemone has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear.
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.
Here at Pansy we know vintage sizes are very different from modern sizes, and we pride ourselves on offering accurate measurements with approximate modern UK sizing to ensure a your Pansy purchases will be a good fit.
Although we do offer approx modern sizing it is also very helpful if you know your own measurements. If you are unsure of these, an easy way of estimating them is measuring one of your own garments, that fits well, laid flat. Measure in inches, across from pit to pit, flat across the waist and double both of these measurements. Our length measurements are mostly taken from the highest point of the shoulder to the hem.
