Say Hello to Parchment, the most stunning cream cotton prairie you ever will see. This beauty is super RARE Early black label Laura Ashley made in wales treasure and is crafted beautifully with no expenses spared, as with all Laura Ashley dresses. She has the classic Laura Ashley silhouette with high neck, flowing skirt and puff sleeves and is adorned in those cotton lace trims we all love.

I could see her styled with sandals on a sunny day or teamed with a gilet to create a gorgeous bohemian vibe.

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.
