Laura Ashley Vintage Medieval Style Brocade Tapestry / Taffeta Evening Dress - WONDERFUL!!
"I reckon that women looked their best at the turn of the century..." Laura Ashley
An undeniable medieval style evening dress made in a perfect harmonized combination between floral brocade tapestry and antique olivine bronze taffeta fabrics. Has a very kind of early "Medieval -Venetian- Florentine" profound scent of that period to it. Brocade is a class of richly decorative shuttle-woven fabrics, often with intricate patterns that include flowers, plants and other natural images. The name comes from the Italian "broccato" meaning embossed cloth. So this "peerless dress" has been made to highlight a stylish class using high quality fabrics designed to show a medieval opulence. The bodice is fitted, seamed and lined in soft beige polyester. Has a feminine deep scoop-neckline front and back garnished in taffeta piping detail matching the skirt. The short sleeve are lined, raglan style cut and has an overall cap-sleeve effect. The rear fastening is a truly elegant element of this dress, formed by nine taffeta covered loop-buttons and a small zip at the skirt waist area. The main tapestry fabric contains 65% polyester and 35% cotton. The skirt is rich gathered at gently dipped front and back waist-line accented with piping detail and falls gracefully into calf-length. A black satin underskirt lining and a black netted petticoat help the skirt to show the volume and its wonderful shape. In perfect condition with all intact and unaltered, freshly dry-cleaned this rare dress holds the Laura Ashley Vintage floral label - Made in Great Britain, code model CA 11249. It is marked with size 8 UK/ 34 EU/ 4 USA
