The Bloodline

The Bloodline, she is a stunning and super rare 1970s Laura Ashley Made in Wales era cotton smock pinafore. She is not lined.

The Bloodline is just so special. Laura Ashley plaid prints of this era are extremely scarce and sought after. She has an extremely full silhouette with full sweep skirt, pockets, flounce at her hem and pin tucks at her bust. This beauty is just so special and one of the key pieces of our Heritage collection.

The blouse is not included with the dress but is available to purchase separately.

This girl would work on UK sizes 6 to 10.

Bust - 34"

Waist - Free

Length -  55"

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

The Bloodline has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be hand washed in cool water at home. She is in good vintage condition with minimal 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.
