* VINTAGE LAURA ASHLEY COTTON AQUA AND PURPLE FLORAL GORED GRAND SWEEP DRESS WITH BOW IN BACK MADE IN GREAT BRITAIN
A beautiful vintage Laura Ashley shades of aqua and purple cotton very full dress.
Scoop neckline, gored full skirt, puff sleeves with a band at the end, comes to a "V" below the waist, side zipper, beautiful low "V" back with large bow and pocket in seam. Wonderful fabric. I did not look at the care tag and washed the dress in the machine and then put it in the dryer. It came out beautifully with not one wrinkle! I just looked at the care tag now and it says to hand wash but I washed it in the machine and it came out without a problem.
Perfect for a garden party, a tea, church or a date!

We examine each item carefully and note any imperfections, but unless an item is said to be new, please don't expect it to be perfect & even some new items have small imperfections. I will always state in the description if there are any imperfections & I never do repairs but leave them to others who are better able to do them than me as that is not my expertise.
Please remember that unless specified all items have been used and will show varying signs of use or wear. We always list the obvious imperfections to the best of our abilities. However, some slight imperfections that will not show or affect wearing or using the item may slip by or not be considered worth mentioning.
Vintage nightgowns & peignoirs may be delicate so I do not wash them in the machine. I wash them in lukewarm water with Woolite or some other mild soap, then rinse & hang dripping wet in the shower.
Since these are vintage items, a bit of extra care needs to be taken with them so they remain beautiful & I definitely would never put a vintage nightgown or a peignoir in the dryer as it would ruin it.
