LAURA ASHLEY VINTAGE VICTORIAN/ EDWARDIAN/ WEDDING/BRIDE/ PRAIRIE MAXI DRESS - ULTRA RARE - MADE IN CARNO WALES UK - IMMACULATE CONDITION
"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
"I don't like ephemeral things, I like things that last forever..."
For a romantic wedding... step back in time. Breathing stops when you look at this dress ... words are useless ... just feel the magic and beauty of the eternal past decades, romance surrounds this dress and makes divine in all its aspects. 
This dress is crafted to a high standard using high quality fabric and lace with Laura's aura in every perfect detail . The soft, fine pure white voile cotton fabric patterned by slight satin finished strips is combined with one of the finest cotton embroidered lace similar to antique "Brussels point de gaze and Duchesse" laces styles.  The bodice is seamed fitted into the waist and is lined in voile plain cotton. Three vertical lace inserts interspersed by the four groups of three rows of pin-tuck details garnish the front view. The long sleeve is unlined and very soft pinch-pleated at shoulder with straight line adorned by one lace insert on middle framed into two groups of three pintucks. The banded-cuff is formed by four pintucks, closed with two delicate mother-of-pearl buttons and enjoyed in gently frilled lace trim. The back view is splendid mirroring the front with long center concealed zip. Over these splendid details the high-neck formed by four horizontal pin-tucks is decorated at the base with five frilled lace trim crossed on middle by the main bodice lace insertion. The wonderful full-length layered skirt is gathered at straight seamed waist and falls absolutely divine in front view with pleated fabric at two rows of lace which are gathered-up on front-of sides. Hemmed by the same fine lace trim the double skirt down to floor-length with opulence of softest fabric reminiscent of civil war period. The back of layered skirt looks stunning in its simplicity but with medieval shape due to the abundance of fabric. Long, wide and intricate at all doubled in self fabric removable ties-sash adjusts the waist-line which can be tied at back to form a lovely bow or just untied...Very wide at the middle-of-front deep pleated around the lace inserts, the sash becomes thinner towards the ends ending in V-points.
Beyond being perfect this dress is irresistible - wonderful, beautiful and complex with its plurality of rare details. I dare say modestly - unworn condition because this dress shows not any sign of wear. The fabric is pure-white immaculate, cuffs and neck are perfect immaculate clean, all-round the lace hem-line is absolutely perfect, impeccable clean and has not any loose thread. The original box is well yellowed and slight damaged by ages but thanks to it the dress remained in perfect untouched condition. In fresh dry-cleaned/ pressed condition this Ultra-Rare dress holds the earliest Laura Ashley Vintage Label - Made in Carno Wales UK and it is marked with size 12 UK/ 38 EU/10 USA. I used for to show the admirable details of this dress a 3/4 length petticoat which is not part from this sale. For the best looking I suggest a long petticoat.
