The Des Fleurs

The Des Fleurs, she is an AMAZING super rare Laura Ashley made in wales cotton prairie dream. 

Des Fleurs is literally something truly special. She is my favourite cut of Laura Ashley, there is something about the scoop neck silhouette I adore so much. Her print is divine, and it is a very rare Laura Ashley print which I have only came across a few times. She has slightly puffed sleeves, a full sweeping skirt which has a flounce to the hem, with such a romantic swish and drape. She has stunning cotton lace trims and panels at her bust.  Honestly this beauty is extremely special indeed, she is probably one of the best Laura Ashley's I have ever stocked here at Pansy.

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 possibly a small 10 best.

Bust - 34"

Waist - 28" - can be cinched in with her side tie belt.

Length -  56.5"

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

Des Fleurs has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please have her dry cleaned or spot clean when needed.  She is in good vintage condition, almost pristine for her age. Her colour and print is still super vibrant and gorgeous.

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.
