The Griffin

The Griffin, she is an absolutely stunning super super rare coveted Laura Ashley made in wales dream dress with the iconic and sought after Griffin print. She is made from cotton.

Griffin is literally the best Laura Ashley beauty one could own.. the Griffin print is probably the most sought after Laura Ashley print, and very rightfully so. She has an unusual silhouette, with a smocky style cut, voluminous sleeves with pin tuck detailing, a super full skirt with flounce hem pin tucked bust, and a rounded neckline with cotton lace trims. She also comes with her original belt. This is truly a dream of a dress and I really hope this beauty finds the home she deserves...

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8/10 possibly a small 12 best. She is quite flexible in size due to her cut.

Bust - 39" 

Empire Waist - 37"

Length -  58.5"

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

Griffin has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please dry clean only, DO NOT wash at home. She is in good vintage condition, no major flaws to note. 

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.
