The popular prettiness of Laura Ashley from the late 70s to the mid-80s really put this designer in a league of her own; and, of course, the styles were often imitated. This dress, in all its particulars, really could have come from a Laura Ashley collection!
The fabric - a silky cotton, or cotton mix - has a complex pattern of white daisies with green stems on blue: very pretty, and decidedly 'ditsy'.
From the front, the dress has short sleeves, and a vee-neck, with purely decorative buttons from the centre of the vee to the waist. The waist is slightly dropped, and shaped at the front - making your waist look smaller - then falls to a full skirt.
The back again has a vee, and here the waist is straight. The whole fastens with a long zip, and has no signs of wear. It is closest to a UK size 10, measuring approximately 36½ ins (92.5 cms) under the arms, 30 ins (76 cms) waist, and 40½ ins (105 cms) from back of neck.
