1972 Cotton “hounds and deer Print” maxi Prarie dress by Laura Ashley UK 12


1972 Cotton “hounds and deer Print” maxi Prarie dress by Laura Ashley UK 12

This rare, muted toned, medieval style fabric was originally designed in the early 70’s by Laura Ashley for home furnishings and was created using old tapestries and linens printed in wales.

Her dusty Rose colour pallette works perfectly with her Ecru Hound and deer forest design, a true collectable item and perfect for your Vintage wardrobe.

Her scooped round neckline leads to a simple 3 button bodice.

She has three quarter length  medieval cut sleeves, giving the dress a historical feel.

Her skirt is gathered at the waist and gives way to a full length prairie, tiered maxi skirt. The dress comes with a long Sash to cinch in the waist as well as a separate neck tie (see images).
