Meet Blue Bloom, she is an absolutely gorgeous 1970s cotton prairie beauty in a beautiful rusty blue floral print. Blue Bloom has a gorgeous shape with a square neckline, sweet puffy sleeves with ruffle cuff and a nipped in waist. I love the little white trims on this beauty, they create such a gorgeous bodice shape. Team her with boots and layer with a knit for the ultimate autumn vibe!
This girl would work on UK sizes 8/10 best.
Bust - up to 36"
Waist - 31" - this can be cinched with her side ties, does sit high.
Length - 56"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Blue Bloom 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.
