Vintage Laura Ashley ~  70s/80s, with a very 40s War Bride feel ~ and 50s Vamp  ~ and also reminiscent of the Victoriana / Edwardian riding coats ~ taking the shape of the body into the waist, very hour-glass, and flaring out towards hem.....featuring a blue velvet collar ~ very slight v-neckline ~ a row of 12 blue velvet covered buttons all the way down the front for fastening ~ blue velvet mock pocket flaps ~ & full length sleeves with blue velvet  cuffs. The skirt is long and very full ~ very fit and flare, tailored to the bodice and then flowing out over the hips....very curvy and extremely flattering!!! xxx


The back of this coat / dress is just stunning also ~ like the front it has been beautifully shaped with seaming that draws in at the waist creating that very sexy 40s style 'nipped in' waist look, beneath the waist the fabric cascades down to form a gorgeous long, full floaty skirt which falls into lovely loose pleats. ~ The coat / dress is fully lined, except for the sleeves, in a silky fabric.


This coat/dress is just gorgeous ~ in the incredibly sexy & flattering victorian full length riding style with the unusual & striking tartan print ~ & the buttons make it so versatile as a gorgeous lighter weight coat or as a stunning dress ~  could be worn as a lightweight coat, over jeans and a T ~ or over a haute couture evening gown ~ or on its own as a dress, with boots for a Victorian / Edwardian feel! ~It's just so versatile & easy to wear! And absolutely ideal for special occasions, wedding, important functions ~ a REALLY STRIKING LOOK!!!


Fabulous condition.

Lovely fabric ~ 80% Cotton & 20% Wool which hangs beautifully ~ & the Velvet detailing is 73% Cotton and 27% Viscose ~ a really beautiful item to wear, treasure and adore for years to come.....xxx



♥ HISTORY: 

~ LAURA ASHLEY ~


Laura Ashley are one of the world's most recognizable British brands and have over 40 years experience in making beautifully tailored 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. 

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! 


"I reckon that women looked their best at the turn of the century..." ~ Laura Ashley
