Meet Barley, she is a gorgeous cotton midi dream by You and Me. She has a gorgeous delicate colourway with a cream base and rustic panelled bodice and contrasting floral prints. She has a beautiful cut with flutter sleeves and a faux wrap cut bodice with sweet fabric covered button closure and attached side ties to cinch the waist. Barley is just a lovely sweet dress, and will look truly gorgeous when worn.
P.S. Sorry, Normas arms sadly broken (they are now repaired) and that's why there are no arms on this photo, I promise Barleys sweet flutter sleeves are a dream!
This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 best, could also work on a UK 4.
Bust - up to 33" - 34"
Waist - 31" does sit high and can be drawn in with the waist ties.
Length - 43"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Barley 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.
