Meet Shamrock, she is an INCREDIBLE and HOLY GRAIL RARE cotton prairie dream dress by Laura Ashley Made in Wales, circa early 1970s. This has got to be one of my best Laura Ashleys sourced to date, in the most vibrant rare green shade, with a broadscale illustrative floral print. She is in my favourite easy to wear scoop neck cut, with lace placements on her bodice, cuffs and neckline, cropped sleeves with frill cuffs and a super full flounced skirt. This is a BEAUTIFUL example of an early Laura Ashley, and is an absolute forever investment piece, I hope she finds an amazing home with one of you..

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.
