The Cornflower

The Cornflower, she is a stunning late 70s rare midi length cotton prairie sundress by Laura Ashley, made in carno, Wales. 

The Cornflower, she is such a perfect summers day dress! She has a smocked stretch bodice with frill edging, tie strap sleeves and a romantic floral print. She is so gorgeous and unusual for a Laura Ashley.

This girl is quite flexible in size due to her smocked bodice, she would work on UK sizes 6/8/10 nicely.

Bust - up to 36" - 38" max

Under Bust - up to 34" max

Length -  38" from underarm down.

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

The Cornflower 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, she has a few tiny faded spots, so faint and unnoticable my camera couldn't pick them up.

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.
