1970S RARE LAURA ASHLEY MADE IN WALES COTTON PRAIRIE MAXI DRESS APPROX UK SIZE 6/8
I am so pleased to be offering this beautiful and RARE 1970s Laura Ashley made in Wales treasure today! This lilac beauty is truly precious and although she needs lots of TLC, is an absolute dream dress! She has a classic Laura Ashley silhouette with super full skirt and is crafted in heaps of block printed cotton. She has fade on her collar edges and slight fade at her underarms, loose seams at her waist and flouce, a hole near her zip and another mend which seems like she has had something sewn into her, which should be removable. This is all repairable with the correct skills, and regardless of needed the work she is still a treasure to behold. In better condition this dress would retail over £250. I hope she finds the best home and is restored to her former glory!
This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 best.
Bust - 35"
Waist - 28"
Length - 56"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.

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.
