♥ OCCASION: Work, play, day or night ~ just for looking beautiful as you go about your everyday life ~


♥ DESCRIPTION: A stunning vintage, jet black, cotton mix soft velvet, full length coat/dress with distinctive styling by Laura Ashley ~ featuring a high nehru style collar lined & edged in taffeta type fabric, which continues down the central hem of the coat ~ a row of thirteen taffeta covered buttons down the centre for fastening ~ curved seaming over the bust & down to the waist seam with quite tight pleats at the waist which then cascade down to form a more full, very flared skirt ~ slightly padded shoulders ~ & full length sleeves with ruched, slightly puffed tops & a buttoned up small slit vent at the cuffs, edged in taffeta ribboning and finished with a velvet covered button at each cuff. ~  The back is just stunning also ~ like the front, there is curved seaming down the top section to enhance the hourglass silhouette, which then gathers into tight pleats beneath the waist seam & then falls into the wonderful full and generous skirt. ~


This coat/dress is just gorgeous, very typical of Laura Ashley styling at her best, with the sumptuous jet black velvet & long length silhouette, which elegantly & subtly 'nips in' at the waist & cascades down into a very full, floaty skirt creating that very sexy victoriana style hour glass figure ~ and the taffeta type detailing just adds that extra touch of beauty to the whole ensemble!~ Incredibly elegant, sophisticated & flattering & just so sexy!!! ~ & due to the fully buttoned up front, high neckline, tailored shape and the lighter weight velvet fabric this coat could certainly be worn as a dress if you choose! This coat/dress is sumptuous and very elegant in a really subtly sexy way, with the opulence, shape and rich textures ~ stunning!!!


Look fabulous worn with everything ~ from jeans and a T ~ to haute couture ~ as a coat or as a dress...just add lace up boots...DIVINE!!! 


Excellent vintage condition ~ PLEASE NOTE that although this is definitely a Laura Ashley vintage item, all labels are missing. I have sold a number of these beautiful pieces and i know that this is, without any doubt, Laura Ashley. I do, at time of listing, have another of these, in a larger size, already listed and you can see that the items are completely alike. Laura Ashley's fabulous quality and such a very gorgeous piece ~ Victorian Mistress Edwardian Vamp Karenina Zhivago Tess of the D'Uerbervilles Jane Eyre 1940s Orient.... Absolutely Stunning!!! xxx


Fabulous quality ~ 73% Cotton & 27% Modal creating a soft medium weight velvet, which looks so luxurious & hangs beautifully ~ fully lined in silky black fabric. ~

♥ STYLING: 

~ Equestrian & Victorian Trend ~ 


The distinctive and very elegantly sexy Victorian and equestrian looks are very on trend ~ and with their timeless elegance, always will be...

As design icon Ralph Lauren asserts 'equestrian is always in', perhaps because it can be worn with as much flair as fits your personality and always instils a sense of timeless class and subtle femininity as inherited by the Victorians who were able to achieve both rather admirably...so don the leather riding boots and delight in the gorgeous hour glass silhouette intrinsic of the tweed jacket, or just as striking, the long velvet riding coat, harking back again to the Victorian and Edwardian era.....

♥ 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


♥ SIZE: There is no size label in this item ~ so we are estimating size on measurements ~ please see measurements below.

UK estimated 8 - 14


EURO estimated 36 - 42


US estimated 4/6 - 12


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.



♥ MEASUREMENTS:


All measurements taken with garment laid flat so please double up for all the way around where appropriate. 


All measurements taken with garment pulled a bit to flatten ~ and please be aware that there is inevitably a slight discrepancy in the ways different people measure ~ so all measurements are approximate and so please give or take about a 1/4 inch or so either way. 


Please measure against a similar garment of your own which you know fits you well.


Bust ~ armpit to armpit ~ approx:  17 1/2 - 18 inches.


Waist ~ approx: 15 inches.


Length ~ taken from shoulder seam where it meets collar and down back of garment to the hem ~ approx: 49  inches.
