This is the most luscious print I have ever seen come out of the Laura Ashley design house! From the 1980s, this gorgeous cotton dress in a rich midnight blue has been printed with a metallic gold design of intricate foliage, that catches the light and creates a wonderful depth as you move. A classic cut, the slight bat wing to the sleeve and the fullness of the skirt makes this a very comfortable dress to wear, allowing you move while looking utterly fabulous. Wear the matching belt for a coordinated look or swap in a plain metallic gold one to cinch in at the waist, and pop on some trainers or boots......or if you are feeling brave, wear some gold boots for a truly epic outfit!

• There is a patch on the print that has slight fading, but I think this is from manufacture rather than an age fault. There is another small patch where the print has darkened, which appears to be from a prior stain removal. Both are not noticeable at all. Shown in photos.
• Care/composition: 100% cotton, 40* wash - I would advise washing inside out to preserve the print
