The Antoinette

The Antoinette, she is a stunning SUPER RARE early 80s Laura Ashley made in Great Britain cotton princess dream. 

The Antoinette, she is just so BEAUTIFUL. She has the most stunning ruffley scoop neck which is low at the back, a boned bodice, huge puff sleeves, bow feature at her neck and the most stunning super full skirt, which is filled with the most romantic ruffles one could find. Her print is a ditsy floral on a soft deep red base. This beauty is VERY special indeed, she is a very very rare 80s Laura Ashley lady and a dress for a lifetime, we have only seen this cut of Laura once before...

This girl measures to approx UK size 12.

Bust - 36"

Waist - 30"

Length -  54"

For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6. 

The Antoinette has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. She is in good vintage condition.

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.
