The Bo Peep

Meet Bo Peep.. she is a HOLY GRAIL RARE early 1980s Laura Ashley Bo-Peep era dream dress. She is beautifully crafted with metres and metres of cotton with a lined and boned bodice. She is adorned in the best ruffles one can find, with three tier ruffles to the fullest skirt one could find and amazing exaggerated ruffles around her neckline and shoulders. She has beautiful puff sleeves with frill cuffs and elasticated shoulder straps, a sweetheart neckline and a low cut back. She has a bow feature at her neckline and a beautifully gathered waist. She is in a pale pink colour with a pink, with a delicate and whimsical floral print. Bo Peep is no normal vintage dress.. she is the BEST and rarest of them all. She will be a treasured piece of your wardrobe for life and is to be passed down as a family heirloom for generations to come. I cannot believe another of these heavenly came into my hands, every time I have had one of these dreamies they have flown out and I cannot wait to see where this beauty is headed today.

This girl measures to approx UK size 10.

Bust - up to 35" - 36"

Waist - 28" - 29"

Length - 58"

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

The Bo Peep has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear, a couple of small faint marks in places, these are very minor, her fabric is maybe a little faded than it once was, but is still truly beautiful. This has been reflected in her price, this dress has been known to sell for £350+ and every version I have sold, or seen up for sale of this dress, has sold immediately. 

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.
