The Bellamy Dress

Let me introduce you to Bellamy, she is a stunning and extremely rare early 1980s baby pink Laura Ashley cotton dream. She is fully lined and is of exquisite quality.

The Bellamy Dress, she is quite literally the Bellamy of the Ball. She is the best 1980s Laura Ashley dress we have ever had here at Pansy. Bellamy was part of Laura Ashleys infamous Bo Peep collection in the very early 80s. She lived her previous life as a bridesmaid dress but she would so totally make an unreal addition to modern wardrobe. Bellamy has the most unreal silhouette, with huge puff sleeves which have bow ties, a princess waistline, and a super full skirt which is gathered at the waist. She has the cutest ruffles and most darling print, this girl really is just extremely special and very very rare.

This girl measures to approx UK size 12/14.

Bust - 38" - 40" max

Waist - 32" - 33"

Length -  55"

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

The Bellamy Dress 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.
