This is an unusual style for Laura Ashley, in that it is made of a silk crepe not their traditional cotton, like many Laura pieces it draws on a prairie influence and has an elegant higher cut neck, beautiful pin tucking and linear embroidery and cut work throughout the body.
The fabric is semi sheer but it could easily be layered with a cami under if desired. The back of the top is much simpler with a feature covered button fastening at the neck, note there is also a concealed side zip to help get this on as it is designed to be a slim fit and the neck buttons alone would make it really difficult top to get on!
It is a rare find and a forever piece treasure forever. In terms of styling it looks great taking centre stage but it would also look great in a more casual way layered under dungarees and pinafore dresses.
Small UK 10 - 6 depending on fit preference, designed to be a neat fit. Measures 18 inches armpit to armpit, shot on UK size 8 for reference. Excellent condition, dry clean only and wear with love.
