The Flax

Meet Flax, she is a beautiful and rare 1970s Laura Ashley made in wales smock beauty in the most gorgeous dusky blue shade. She has a stunning tent silhouette with gorgeous bell sleeves, a notched collar and heaps of beautiful flowing cotton fabric. Like all Laura Ashley dresses, her cotton is super soft and amazing quality. I have no doubts that she will be super comfy to wear and will be a well loved and worn piece of your wardrobe.

This girl is flexible in her size due to her cut, best fit for UK sizes 10/12/14 or smaller if you would like a super oversized look.

Bust - up to 42"

Waist - FREE

Length -  42"

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

The Flax 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.

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.
