Meet Amaryllis, she is a beautiful and super rare 1970s red cotton corduroy dream dress by renowned british designer of the time Valerie Goad. This beauty is literally to die for, and a very special piece. She has a gorgeous and extremely flattering silhouette with super cinched thick waistband with attached side ties, a beautiful plunging neckline and stunning sleeves. Her colour is a rich and vibrant shade of red and she has gorgeous geometric green trims. Amaryllis is one of those collectible and iconic pieces, which I just know will never be found again. She quite literally is the ultimate festive dress but could also be styled for other occasions too. I hope she finds the best home!
This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8
Bust - up to 34" possibly 35"
Waist - 26"
Length - 57"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Amaryllis has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear.
This beauty has minimal signs of vintage wear, but please bear in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all of our garments will carry your usual signs of vintage wear. Anything that we think is outside of what would class as usual vintage wear, we will state.
Here at Pansy we know vintage sizes are very different from modern sizes, and we pride ourselves on offering accurate measurements with approximate modern UK sizing to ensure a your Pansy purchases will be a good fit.
Although we do offer approx modern sizing it is also very helpful if you know your own measurements. If you are unsure of these, an easy way of estimating them is measuring one of your own garments, that fits well, laid flat. Measure in inches, across from pit to pit, flat across the waist and double both of these measurements. Our length measurements are mostly taken from the highest point of the shoulder to the hem.
