Welcome to vintage*clothes*heaven

Rare Laura Ashley swan print maxi dress

A tremendous dress reminiscent of victorian or edwardian era,s but an original i believe 1974 dress. The fabric is a 100% heavy cotton in a super duper rare swan print known as avon, maroon background with creamy swan print, the design is exquisite and totally beautiful with a romantic bohemian aura to it with a victorian twist, high neck with lace trim, long tapering sleeves with a small slit at each wrist and lace trimmed, fitted bodice with seven rows of lace horizontally across, fitted waist with a self tie belt attached, super full skirt area withh a tiered frill at the bottom, fastens with a zip enclosure to the back.

Condition is absolutely superb vintage condition, the dress looks and feels as though it,s never been worn superbly crisp and excellent strong stitching with no wear or tear, it has probably been stored and never seen the light of day which is such a shame, i am not laundering and will leave this to the buyer as i don,t want to ruin the newness of the garment.

Extremely rare label from when Laura and husband Bernard used to ship there fabrics out to be made up in the chosen shipping country,  this dress in Australia which is where this label has come from, it states Laura Ashley all cotton  size (Australian) 12, made in australia under reg. lic. agreement to Laura Ashley LTD. Wales. by trevola group of companies.

This dress measures, 36" chest, 30" waist, free hip and 60" in length and would likely fit a modern uk size 10 - 12.

I found only one reference on the swan print dress, a picture taken from the bath museum exhibition and this was a childs dress in blue, so here we have an adults and still in a good size to be wearable.
