A wonderful find, this vintage Laura Ashley treasure is beautiful on and is a perfect weight for Autumn and Winter weather. Made in their high quality inimitable cotton, it feels soft, warm and has beautiful movement with such a wide hem. The dress has a gorgeous print with warm colours against a blue base, the colour of which is echoed in detailing at the collar, in the front paneling and at the cuff. It is cut beautifully with a wide tapering sleeve and ties to the waist with a half belt at the back, so it can be cinched in and will last a good few years for sure. With all of these elements that just aren't found on the high street today, it is a dress that will certainly generate lots comments.
It could be worn with boots or sandals and enjoyed in Autumn and Winter, as much as in the Spring.
A small mark on the back of one cuff (pictured) does not detract from the beauty of this piece on.
Age 7-9 years depending on child.
