This is a gorgeous made in Wales original and collectible Laura Ashley smock dress with its own tie belt and tie neck. There are buttons at the neckline and on each shoulder there is elasticated smocking which is still in good order. There is a lot of vintage material in the dress which could be used for other projects or upcycling if desired, it is a lovely vintage country print.
This is nearly 50 years old and is still strong. It is a lovely true country girl look and will fit a number of sizes as it is loose. The label states size 14 but I am a 16/18 and I have no problem wearing it at all.
It is in very good order with no defects that I can see - but it is vintage please consider this when bidding as there may be signs of previous wear which may not be detected initially - I will of course describe any that I can see but everyone has their own way of looking at items and some extremely small flaws may be overlooked - HOWEVER the true vintage collector will NOT consider these to be of any detriment and will in fact add to the vintage charm of an old garment which will be virtually unique and rare.
Please make payment WITHIN 3 days of auction ending otherwise Ebay will start an 'unpaid buyer' case which will affect your account and will impact upon any future purchases that you may wish to subsequently make - many thanks

All items are from a smoke free home but we do have two cats although they don't wear my clothing but if this is an issue please consider this when bidding - many thanks
Please ask any questions before bidding as I am unable to accept returns unless item is not significantly as described - in saying this there may be some very small flaws in used/vintage items that may be missed (this is not intentional as I will list any 'significant' flaws if I see them - it is nobody's interest not to do so!) - please use common sense and accept that these are NOT 'significant flaws' as any/every preused item will bear some sign of a previous life - many many thanks for your understanding in this as they will usually be so small that they are overlooked and will be remedied with a small stitch/iron on patch etc here or there.
Please can I respectfully request that all payment is made within 3 days of auction ending - if this is not possible please let me know and we can work something out. If you would like an item before listing ends please contact me and we can work out a buy it now price if this is wanted.
All items from a clean, smoke free home
Please, please also remember any vintage item HAS usually been worn before, is usually quite old and will possibly bear signs of this - please use common sense and if needed put in a stitch here or there (if I have missed it) and/or dry clean/wash the item as I do not do this usually because of all the allergy issues that are around at the present time - so I leave this to the buyer.
Please be charitable when leaving feedback for postage as none of us like this extra expense but I always try to charge what the post office state and add a bit for time to package, driving and parking to the PO and please don't forget ebay takes listing fees, final value fees and after that Paypal take their cut, which doesn't leave the seller with the amount that is stated on the listing and in some cases the amount taken by them is quite hefty.
