A very rare find, this Victorian style full length vintage Laura Ashley dress was made in Wales in the early days of their business. It would look wonderful on for a special occasion or wedding, particularly alongside an adult prairie style dress. It is full length so could be shortened if the wearer not tall enough. The very long belt has some fading and this could be adapted but with a piece of this age, there is sometimes some fading but this doesn't affect the quality or look on.
I love to see these dresses worn with fresh white converse or gladiator sandals and to dress them down, a denim jacket could be added, or to pay homage to their day a little crochet shawl would be the perfect accessory.
In a sugar pink cotton, these styles are immaculately made and are a delight to wear. The soft sage colour works particularly well with pinks and lilacs to add warmth, and the dresses aside from serving a purpose are an absolute fashion heirloom of Laura Ashley archive quality.
Rare to come by, we have just one like this.
Marked as Age 5-6 years the fit is petite and would fit from 4 years up but see measurements as a guide.
