This dress is a very special one to me and I've been waiting for the perfect day to wear it. Jon's Mummy Gilly wore it back in the 80's and kindly passed it down the generations to me. It's a vintage Laura Ashley dress with a delicate lace collar finished with a beautiful summer floral motif. In my opinion Laura Ashley isn't as good as it used to be, meaning dresses like this are a rare and precious commodity. I grew up wearing Laura Ashley dresses for special occasions when I was a kid and the stuff they used to design is now very much sought after by vintage collectors.
If you have a look on Ebay these days the most popular Laura Ashley dresses- those with the most bids- are the longer style ones like this. I usually don't like my tea dresses too long as they make me look shorter but stood in a field of wild flowers on a Summers day, it was difficult to imagine a more perfect dress to wear.
