I love the puffy tiered sleeves on this peasant dress by Laura Ashley! Done in a striped pattern of grey, red and navy blue with a tiny ruffle around the neckline, sleeves and full tiered skirt, it's a fun and flouncy with a fiesta flare kind of dress!
The dress is unlined and pulls on over the head with no zipper. Because there are no zippers or buttons, be sure of the sizing as it is tight when pulling on over the shoulders. There are hidden pockets in the skirt, one on each side.
Label: Laura Ashley
Please note this listing is for the striped dress only and does not include the handbag, hats or jewelry.
Condition: Very good gently worn. A teeny tear/hole in the fabric under the left arm pit at the sleeve seam, will need a few stitches. Also, the gathers at the sleeve endings are VERY LOOSE. I'm not sure if this is due to worn/stretched out elastic, although it is not crunchy in a way that dried elastic gets but not sure and would doubt the sleeves were intentionally made this way. The only way to tighten the gathers at the sleeve ends would be to open the seam and pull the interior trim ribbon tighter. Refer to last few images to see how loose the sleeves are at the ends, I have made no attempts to tighten them and the dress will ship this way.
XXS (when looking at the measurements be mindful that there are no zippers or fasteners which can prove challenging when trying to pull on over the shoulders)
