♥ DESCRIPTION: An ABSOLUTELY stunning, rare to find vintage, floral, special day, or evening, full skirted dress / ballgown with stunning laced corset back by Laura Ashley, with beautiful styling ~ in a soft cotton with a black ground and with pale and very pretty pastel pink flowers with green foliage ~ vintage 80s with a very 50s style and look...so beautiful...


~ The dress features a rounded neckline and beautifully shaped fitted bodice which comes down to a small point at front ~ the waist is fitted creating a very 40s/50s nipped in hour glass shape. ~ The lovely full skirt which falls in loose soft pleats from the more tightly pleated waistline, in a midi mid-length to maxi long length (depending on your height) ~ You could wear a 50s style petticoat underneath if you choose, to make that very 50s full skirted look, or without, either way it's beautiful. ~ The back of the dress is stunning also ~ it has such a lovely laced corset style back, which can be laced as loosely or as tightly as you choose, from above the waist up to the back neckline ~ and looks lovely laced with some of your back showing through the lacing . ~ The lacing is made of the same floral fabric. 


This dress is just ABSOLUTELY gorgeous ~ tailored so beautifully to create the most sexy & flattering style & fit, with the fitted bodice, corset back, & very 50s style full skirt, which splays right out when you walk, move or dance... Just add red lips for that ultimate 50s 'Old Hollywood' starlet glamour...Gorgeous!!! Would look stunning for a summer wedding with a lovely huge rimmed hat!!!


Excellent vintage condition ~ soft 100% Cotton fabric, lovely to wear ~ in black, with a beautiful summer floral print in pastel pink & green ~ a real beauty! xxx


Please note that some photographs are taken with added petticoats to add volume to the skirts, these petticoats are not included in the sale ~ very easily purchased from a number of retailers online.

♥ HISTORY: 

~ LAURA ASHLEY ~


Laura Ashley are one of the world's most recognizable British brands and have over 40 years experience in making colourful, seasonal clothing with retro styling and timeless chic, capturing the essence of the Victorian era and feminine florals that make all of their designs quintessentially English and timeless. 


Laura's love of all things Victorian led to the longer length silhouette and feminine styles which would become the company's trademark and was right on trend at the end of the 1960's when fashion turned from the mini to the maxi - a trend that has since returned with force emphasizing Laura Ashley's timeless quality.

In 1961 Laura Ashley and husband Bernard Ashley moved from their Kent home, the original design and production venue, to Carno, Wales, to enable them to expand the business and be inspired by the rolling Wales countryside. 

Their vintage pieces are now so sought after and desired! - and once you have seen and worn their clothing you'll know why they are so adored!

STYLE: 

~ Dior's New Look ~


On 12 February 1947, Dior launched his first fashion collection for Spring-Summer 1947. The new collection went down in fashion history as the "New Look" after the editor-in-chief of Harper's Bazaar Carmel Snow's exclamation, "It's such a New Look!"

 

The silhouette was characterised by a small, nipped-in waist and full skirt which emphasised the bust and hips. At a time of post-war fabric restrictions, Dior used up to twenty yards of extravagant fabrics for his creations. The New Look became extremely popular, its full-skirted silhouette influencing fashion and other designers well into the 1950s, and Dior gained a number of prominent high-profile clients from Hollywood, the United States and the European aristocracy as a result. Paris, which had fallen from its position as the capital of the fashion world after WWII, regained its esteemed position due in part to the attention it gained from Dior's New Look. The New Look was welcomed in western Europe as a refreshing antidote to the austerity of wartime, and was embraced by stylish women throughout the UK.

 SIZE: Please ask for any measurements you might need as often vintage sizes can come up a little smaller than modern day sizing...xxx

UK 12 ~ in label


EURO 38 ~ in label


US 8 ~ in label


Some items do not carry a full range of international sizes in the label so i use an internet international size conversion site to translate UK sizes into EURO and US sizes ~ the site has proved very accurate, however if you are unsure please check sizes for yourself.


 




Any QUESTIONS please ask!


LASTLY, IN TWO WORDS........JUST BEAUTIFUL! xxx
