'LAURA ASHLEY' VINTAGE TARTAN PINAFORE DRESS in Viyella-like fabric
[size 12] ~ Never Worn
This vintage pinafore from Laura Ashley was part of their Highland Collection, coming from a period that exemplifies true quality. It is made from a fine lightweight fabric, the content of which is the same as Viyella [55% wool and 45% cotton] in a classic dark navy and red tartan plaid (please inspect the photographs).
It has a rounded neckline and a loose-fitting waistline, from which a full-length gathered skirt falls (with a generous amount of fabric).
The bodice is neatly lined in a dark navy fabric [100% polyester] whereas the skirt is unlined.
Deep pockets (in the same tartan fabric) can be found concealed in the seam on either side of the garment.
Finally, it has small dark navy buttons on the shoulders and down the left side (with two spare buttons sewn onto the inside of the seam).
The approximate measurements are as follows (with the garment lying flat):
Bust 13 x 2 = 26 inches (narrower being a pinafore bodice)
Waist 17 x 2 = 34 inches (oversized according to the style)
Since being purchased late in the 1980's, it has been stored in moth-proof bags (hence the creases). It has never been worn and so remains in its original new condition (with tag still attached).
Even though the proportions were always wrong for me, some cherished garments are extremely hard to part with!
