Looking just like a classic Laura Ashley, the needle cord dream from the 1980s has all the prairie hallmarks needed to make this a dream of a frock. The colour is a deep dusky pink with a small rose bud print, a wonderful weight too. Frills edges the high neckline, the sleeves and the skirt hem which had an added cute touch of classic broderie anglais lace trim, and the sleeves are fab with the extenuated puff to the shoulder and tight cuff giving the look of a leg-o-mutton. This dress is just fab, the right amount of girly, which can be easily toughened up with some chunky boots.
