♥ DESCRIPTION: A stunning, and very rare to find, vintage, navy blue, pure silk sailor dress by Laura Ashley, with such beautifully elegant styling ~ featuring a v-neckline framed with a triangular collar detailed with two strips of white ribboning, which creates a cross-over style at the bottom of the v-neckline ~ a half seam under the bust & curved seaming over the bust, creating a lovely shape at the bodice and a beautifully flattering smooth waisted look ~ & then the skirt falls from here gently flaring towards the bottom hem ~ long, quite floaty skirt ~ concealed long side zip ~ & short sleeves with two strips of white ribbon around the ends. ~ 


The back is just stunning also ~ with the square 'sailor' collar, detailed with two strips of white ribboning skimming across the back of the neck ~ curved seaming, which runs all the way down the back of the dress to the bottom hem ~ & long, quite floaty silk skirt. ~ Depending on your height, this dress is mid-length falling to mid-calf i'd say but please see measurements further down the page for a more accurate idea of length.

This dress is just ABSOLUTELY amazing ~ beautifully detailed and tailored to create a sensational and very subtly SEXY sailor dress ~& the soft silk just adding that extra touch of delight! This dress is  just divine!!!


Look fabulous worn with everything ~ opaque tights, bare legs, ankle boots, high heels ~ gorgeous foe a WEDDING, just add a HUGE hat and red lipstick!!!


Excellent vintage condition  ~ 100% pure silk, which hangs beautifully ~ so perfect for the spring/summer!!! ~ In traditional navy blue with white ribbon detail ~ & fully lined in navy blue silky acetate ~ a real beauty! xxx

♥ 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!
