VINTAGE LAURA ASHLEY 1920s/30s STYLE GATSBY FLAPPER SAILOR DRESS, UK 8-10 (Label 12)

THE SAILOR DRESS OF YOUR VINTAGE DREAMS HAS LANDED!!!!

1920s/1930s STYLE DROP WAIST SPRING/SUMMER ICONIC LAURA ASHLEY SAILOR DRESS IN DEEP BLUE SUBTLE FLORAL SELF PATTERNED….  EYECATCHING WHITE PIPING DETAIL ON SAILOR COLLAR AND WHITE SATINY RIBBON TO TIE UP INTO A BOW AT THE FRONT.

Sleeves are short and summery, pinch gathered at shoulder tops

Dropped waist skirts are neatly pleated at the join with bodice

AUTHENTIC VINTAGE 1980s LAURA ASHLEY LABEL

FASTENS AT BACK BY DISCREET ZIP

LENGTH FROM SHOULDER TOP TO HEM IS 47”

LENGTH FROM SHOULDER TOP TO WHERE PLEATED DROP WAIST SKIRT JOINS BODICE IS 24.5”

SKIRT LENGTH IS 23.5”

LABEL STATES UK 12, EUR 38 US 10 BUT IMPORTANT NOTE ON FITTING: THESE DRESSES WERE INTENDED TO WEAR LOOSE (AND THEY NEED LOOSENESS AT THE HIPS TO LOOK RIGHT)

ALSO - VINTAGE SIZING IS NOTHING LIKE MODERN, SO I AM GIVING THE EXACT MEASUREMENTS LAID FLAT.

THAT WAY – YOU DECIDE HOW LOOSE YOU ARE GOING TO BE HAPPY WITH. GRAB A TAPE MEASURE AND CHECK ALL THESE MEASUREMENTS WORK FOR YOU

BUST (MEASURED PIT TO PIT) IS 18” (so DOUBLE TO 36”) BUT HONESTLY BUST 32”- 34” Would give better (slightly looser) fit

WAIST – effectively freesize due to style

HIPS (Very Important) 19” (so double to 38”)

BUT –IF YOU HAVE 37”/37” HIPS THIS WILL NOT SUIT: YOU NEED EVEN SLIMMER HIPS THAN THAT BECAUSE OF THE STYLE. I WOULD SAY 34”-35” HIPS WOULD BE PERFECT, SO THE DRESS CAN HAVE SWINGY LOOSENESS AS IT WAS STYLED TO HAVE.

(YOU HAVE TO BE VINTAGE SAVVY WITH THESE DRESSES. NOTHING LOOKS MORE GHASTLY THAN SOMEONE SQUASHED INTO A DROP WAIST DRESS. IF THE HIP LINE IS NOT LOOSE IT CUTS IN JUST UNDER THE TUMMY. YUK!!!  TRUST ME, I’M AN EXPERT ON EXCESSIVE TUMMIES : - )  AND I AM VINTAGE (sniff!!)

MADE OF SMOOTH LINEN (30%) and COTTON (70%) MIX  -  perfect for SPRING AND EASTER TIME WEARING… CRISP, FRESH LOOKING

OVERALL EXCELLENT VINTAGE CONDITION – No alterations – has original hemline. BUT PLEASE NOTE – THIS DRESS HAS SOME SLIGHT IMPERFECTIONS.

(1) TEENSY WEENSY MARK ON RIBBON.

(2)  2 TINY BROWN MARKS ON INSIDE COLLAR

(3)  ZIP – DOES NOT PULL DOWN PROPERLY ALL THE WAY: IT’S A 22” LONG ZIP AND WILL NOT GO OPEN PAST 20” BUT REALISTICALLY IF YOU ARE SLIM ENOUGH TO FIT THIS DRESS THAT WILL NOT POSE A PROBLEM FOR GETTING IT ON. I JUST LIKE TO BE 100% HONEST ABOUT SUCH STUFF.

THESE SAILOR DRESSES ARE OFTEN LISTED ON EBAY FOR WELL OVER £100 BECAUSE THEY ARE SUCH ICONIC STATEMENT ASHLEY DRESSES – THEY ARE HIGHLY DESIRABLE – BUT I AM LISTING THIS FOR AUCTION AT A SILLY LOW START PRICE. GRAB IT OR KISS IT BYE BYE FOREVER!! : - )

ALSO I HAVE ANOTHER ONE LISTED – SLIGHTLY BIGGER THAN THIS

MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN

Freshly hand washed and pressed – ready to wear and charm the socks off everyone in

PLEASE READ THESE BORING BUT NECESSARY BITS:

PAYMENT: We appreciate payment of your winning bid within 3 days. It means we can post out promptly. If this is not possible, please let us know.

If neither has happened, after a week, the sale will be cancelled & the item relisted.

We DO report non-payers to eBay.

COMBINED POSTAGE: We combine the P & P cost of multiple purchases where possible, and use (clean) recycled packaging materials when we can. We pack using poly-bobbles etc, if a fragile item is being sent.

We don’t charge you for our trip/s to the Post Office, nor charge greedy money for packing materials, etc. NB. Clothing is always sent in fresh, new packaging.

Items will be sent by trackable delivery and in the consequent invoice, your postage costs will reflect that.

BUYERS FROM EUROPE, Our ‘Overseas’ postal costs are set to far off places (so no ‘nasty shocks’ for the people that live in them!)  YOU are a lot closer to the UK, so we will almost certainly be able to send to you  for LESS.

Please contact us so we can give you the exact cost.

LARGE &/OR HEAVY ITEMS:  Within the UK, using a courier is always an option to save you money. Contact us & we will source the cheapest ‘deal’ for you.

SELLING: Nothing is sent out from us without care & we send nothing we would not be happy to receive. As we are human, it is possible something may slip the ‘net’ on rare occasions. If you are not happy with your item, please follow eBay ethos & CONTACT US BEFORE LEAVING CRITICAL feedback.

(If you do, we’ll respect that, like you for it & probably offer you a return & refund option, plus positive f/back for you.

We cannot be held responsible for items lost in the post. However, we obtain proof of postage on EVERY item sent, so will help with information for a claim to the postal service if required. If recorded delivery or insurance is required please tell us you want this to be added to your invoice prior to the checkout of your item.

 THANKS FOR READING – HAPPY BIDDING!!
