The Crockery

Meet Crockery, she is an absolutely gorgeous and rare early 1970s Laura Ashley Made in Wales dream dress. As always, this lovely Laura is crafted with heaps of cotton and is just beautiful quality. She has a cream base colour with a delicate blue flora print, a gorgeous square neckline with frill, sweet sleeves with frill cuff and a true empire line waist. This is a rare and early Laura Ashley dress, filled with charm and love, I can see her paired with chunky sandals for the perfect summer vibe.

This girl measures to approx UK size 4/6/8 depending on desired fit and bust size

Bust - up to 35" - 

Empire Waist - 30"

Length -  54"

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

The Crockery 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. She has a couple of small marks in places and a few other minor signs of wear, this is NORMAL and EXPECTED with an early LA. She is still a true beauty! I do also believe she would have came with a matching belt origially but this has sadly been lost in time..

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.
