True vintage Laura Ashley early 1980s evening dress is top quality black cotton velvet, with a silver/grey floral/foliage pattern. The dress is from the Lady Diana era, when everyone wanted to emulate her demure quintessentially English rose style. The dress is full length with long 1980s 'puff' sleeves on the shoulders, then tapered arms with 2 small silver buttons at the narrow wrists. (Buttons fasten with loops in the same fabric). The neck-line is square (with a slight 'V' at the centre bust) - little bit Victorian/Suffragette in style - then the body section is fitted like a bodice/corset with a rounded lower front section at the waist-line, then the skirt is gathered at the waist seam and is quite full in shape. There are 2 completely invisible lined side pockets on the hips. The body section is lined in black. There is a long zip all the way up the back, for ease of dressing.

In very good clean condition - worn once for a special occasion in the early 1980s (when the itching labels were cut) & then stored safely for 30 years.

Measures UK10/12. Approx measurements: Waist 30" x Bust 34" x Hips 60" max x Length 49"
