Peony is a stunning rare piece from the 70s made in Wales, a classic example of the Laura Ashley's ultra feminine and romantic hand writing. This empire line maxi is made of a heavy quality cotton with scooped square neck back and front. Pretty ruffling details on cuffs and neckline add to the femininity and the empire line tie cinches the silhouette in for a flattering fit. This is an iconic design of Laura Ashley's history, and hard to find especially in this condition. A truly collectible dress that deserves to be reworn and loved.
