ROMANTIC VINTAGE LAURA ASHLEY LATE VICTORIAN/EDWARDIAN STYLE VOILE WEDDING/SPECIAL DRESS, UK 6 - 8

  RARE IVORY LAURA ASHLEY LATE VICTORIAN/EARLY EDWARDIAN STYLED WEDDING DRESS

MADE OF TOP QUALITY COTTON VOILE SELF PATTERNED WITH TINY RAISED POLKA DOTS

THE ‘LOOK’ IS TOTALLY ETHEREAL & DAINTY - I HAVE INCLUDED A PHOTOGRAPH (NUMBER 12) FROM THE ORIGINAL ASHLEY CATALOGUE, FOR INTEREST & PROVENANCE. The dress for sale is the one in all the other pics (obvious, I know, but thought I'd better state it as the belt is shown in the catalogue pic whereas this dress does not have its belt.

PLEASE NOTE :  THE DRESS DOES NOT HAVE ITS ORIGINAL SASH BELT SO THE PRICE HAS BEEN REDUCED TO REFLECT THIS FACT.

FOR WEARING, AN IVORY SATIN RIBBON WOULD LOOK LOVELY, OR ACCENT WITH A PASTEL COLOUR. The dress does not actually require a belt to look exquisitely beautiful

 DEMURELY STYLED FITTED BODICE WITH LAVISH SIGNATURE PINTUCKING & EXQUISITE LACE TRIMMING TO BODICE. - A DAINTY GRAPEVINE (FOR GOOD FORTUNE) WINDING ITS WAY DOWN THE BODICE, AROUND THE SLEEVE CUFFS, & AROUND THE HEMLINE (IN A DOUBLE ROW)   

THE SLEEVES ARE LONG, GATHERED AT THE SHOULDER TOP & TRIMMED WITH MORE PINTUCKING TO OUTER SIDE.

THEY FASTEN BY 2 DAINTY FAUX MOTHER OF PEARL BUTTONS

THE SKIRTS ARE FULLY GATHERED TO THE NATURAL WAISTLINE TO HANG GRACEFULLY

SOFT WHITE UNDERSKIRTS TO STOP THE FINE FABRIC BEING SEE -THROUGH

ZIP FASTENING TO BACK (it is a Metal zip of course) WHICH LOOKS A SLIGHTLY DEEPER CREAM WHEN THE GOWN IS NOT ON A BODY. FINE WHEN IT IS BEING WORN THOUGH. TINY AMOUNT OF SURFACE PAINT GONE FROM THE ZIP ‘PULL’

 IF YOU ARE PLANNING A VICTORIAN, EDWARDIAN OR ‘DOWNTON ABBEY’ THEMED WEDDING, IT WOULD ALSO BE ABSOLUTELY PERFECT

 CONDITION IS SUPERIOR TIMEWARP VINTAGE.

HAS ITS ORIGINAL, UNALTERED HEM & NO ALTERATIONS OR ISSUES OTHER THAN STATED. ALL BUTTONS ARE THE ORIGINAL ONES.

 Labelled UK 12 (EUR 38 USA 10) BUT MEASURES MUCH SMALLER – PLEASE NOTE THIS DRESS WILL FIT A MODERN UK SIZE 6 - 8 ON THE BASIS OF MODERN STANDARD BUST & WAIST MEASUREMENTS.

WHEN ASSESSING ITS SUITABILITY FOR YOU, PLEASE FACTOR IN THAT YOU WILL NEED TO WEAR SOMETHING (SILK CAMI TOP?) UNDERNEATH AS OTHERWISE YOU’LL BE BLUSHING – NOTE THE POSITION OF THE LACE PANELS ON THE BODICE & THE FACT THAT THEY ARE SHEER.

 BUST measures to fit 30”-32” max

WAIST measures to fit 26” (which leaves a bit of room spare for comfort) to 28” (which would be tight)

HIPS are freesize

TOTAL LENGTH FROM TOP SHOULDER SEAM TO HEM IS 56”

SLEEVE LENGTH (MEASURED FROM SHOULDER TOP TO CUFF EDGE) 23”

BODICE (TOP SHOULDER TO WAIST) IS  15”

WRIST APERTURE:  for comfort, 6” though will fasten at 6.5” if you do not mind tight cuffs.

NECK APERTURE: 12”” FOR COMFORTABLE FIT LEAVING WIGGLE ROOM. WILL FIT TO 13” MAX IF YOU ARE HAPPY WITH A CLOSE FITTING NECK
