Meet Iris, she is an absolutely stunning and rare mid 1970s Laura Ashley made in wales cotton victoriana dream dress. This cut of Laura is actually a rare one, I've only came across a couple of these in the past. She has a beautiful fitted shape with gorgeous sleeves which have a slightly puffed shoulder, nipped in waist, full flowing skirt and high collar. I love the frill detailing on this one, with a frilled yoke with pintuck detailing, frill collar, frill cuffs and a frill finished hem. Her colour doesn't show well on photos, she has a deep indigo micro leaf print on an off white base, and in person she is divine.. I hope she finds the best home.
This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8
Bust - up to 33" - 34"

Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.
