Laura Ashley Vintage Full-Length Country Victorian Style Dress - A Rare Masterpiece - 45 Years Old!!
"I didn't set out to be Victorian but it was a time when people lived straightforward, basic lives, when everything was clear cut and respectable...Respectability matters a lot to me." - Laura Ashley 

 Please note: the condition of this dress is almost perfect apart from a small faint mark on front skirt, hardly visible, hard to be detect on rich print, please check the last picture. The fabric has no faded, it is clear-fresh colored, pure-white, lace is intact, cuffs and collar are impeccable clean and the fresh crisp labels are intact. 
Charming, feminine full-length dress in the Victorian Country style - A RARE PIECE CREATED BY LAURA ASHLEY - created to define the Victorian era symbolized like a "gentle, gracious living, a time when standards, domestic and industrial, were at their highest and England at its best". The elaborate "old school "design compliments the beautiful ditsy floral print of two tone of blue-bell and navy on a pure-white base. This dress has a special design - a combination of a house wear and what seems to be appropriate in front of friends and family. Although this graceful and feminine stylish form of this dress was meant for a mid-day garment, the length of its time extended to night time.
The front fitted wrap bodice has a  modest V-neckline adorned with large shawl style collar edged in delicate white cotton bobbin lace. The sleeve has only few soft pinch-pleats at shoulder, classic straight line with two rows of pin-tucks and lace trim, ending gracefully bellow the elbow line. The front skirt seamed at raised waist is made of three widen panels, flat on the middle and soft gathered in front-of-side bellow the bust-line. Exactly over the long ties-sash adjusts and complimenting the bust-line. The back view is cut in different style with entire two widen  panels from shoulder to hem, with long rear concealed zip and with the beautiful flowing collar over shoulders. All panels form together a rich imperial style skirt which cascades to approx maxi-length. Due to the sturdy nature of this fabric - pure cotton in its natural form, the skirt falls beautiful and does not need of extra petticoat. The ties-sash knotted or formed in bow, gives that special touch of romantic era. Beautiful and perfect created, with style and elegance, with modesty and romance, this dress "without a parallel"  holds the most precious Laura Ashley vintage label " Dyers and Printers" - Made In Wales. It is marked in size UK 10/ EU 36 cm / USA 8.  Please note: If the dress is too long  - PLEASE DO NOT CUT! This dress is approx 45 year old and it is in fabulous condition - it is part of Laura Ashley history - " A Life by Design".
