Laura Ashley Vintage ultra-rare white sailor dress - 20/30s Edwardian - Flapper 40/50s style
"I reckon that women looked their best at the turn of the century..." Laura Ashley
Please note before to bid! This dress has a faint mark ( check the last picture) located 3 inches of the dropped waist on the center pleat. Apart from that wonderful dress. In my opinion it can be careful bleached.
A seaside romantic dream... Extremely rare to find in white color, one of the most beautifully dress created ever - part of her 80s sailor series, tailored with highest standard in the very traditional 20/30s Victorian/ Edwardian/ Flapper style. Made of white medium-heavy cotton, slight starched, gently contoured with navy trim highlighting its fabulous nautical look. The loose-fit comfortable bodice is deep vertical pleated on front view, displays an adorable sailor style collar piped in navy fine lace-wire with V-shaped framed into pleats and pointed with cute bow. Squared shaped over shoulders the collar is split to the back where a long concealed zip fastens the dress. The short sleeve beautifully pleated on shoulder ends in V-point above the elbow. The skirt is deep pleated into seam dropped waist and falls amazing in very 20s style to calf-length in its original hem. Awesome for its exceptional tailoring, pure for the highest visual impact effect...elegant, formal and casual...superb investment for many summers coming. This dress is in "lovely-adorable-admirable" condition apart from the mark mentioned, white - clean, fresh and little starched fabric, with all original-intact-unaltered and proudly to its quality holds the Laura Ashley Vintage floral label - Made in Great Britain, marked with size 12 UK/ 38 EU/ 10 USA, model code CA 11249.
