The Rosie

Meet Rosie, she is a beautiful and SUPER RARE 1970s Laura Ashley made in Wales bohemian red dream dress. She is beautifully crafted in a gorgeous vibrant red cotton with ditsy rose print and has the most easy breezy summery silhouette with shirred waist and cuffs, drawstring neckline and a tiered skirt with ruffle details. This is a really rare and special cut of Laura Ashley, she is perfect for summery days and has a real boho feel about her. I know she will be a go-to throw on dress for many summers to come for her next owner, and I cannot wait to see where she is headed today. 

This girl is a flexible fit and would work on approx UK sizes 6/8/10 best.

Bust - up to 38" 

Waist - up to 28" - 29"

Length -  58" - this will be shorter when worn due to her waist cinching up. 

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

The Rosie 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.
