The Leaves, she is a stunning super rare cotton prairie beauty by coveted british boutique label of the time Earlybird.
Leaves is absolutely stunning, a really unique example of an Earlybird dress. She has a classic prairie victoriana silhouette, with high neck, nipped in waist, pin tucking at her bodice and slightly voluminous sleeves with frill cuffs. She has attached side ties, a flounce to her hem and a beautifully flowing skirt. Her print is truly gorgeous, it is a clustered floral in greens and orange. Leaves is a very special prairie beauty, and I cannot wait to see where she continues her life...

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.
