Meet Botanica, she is a beautiful and rare 70s Liberty beaut, this is actually an Origin dress but has lost her labels. She is crafted in a beautiful soft brushed cotton with the most beautiful contrasting soft blue piped accents. She has a soft green tone with a blue base and like all Liberty florals, her print is a dream. She has a beautiful silhouette with gorgeous sleeves, nipped in waist and a high mandarin collar. I know Botanica will look a dream when worn, and I know she will be a treasured part of her next owners wardrobe!
This girl measures to approx UK size 10 small 12.
Bust - up to 38"
Waist - 30"
Length - 44.5"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Botanica 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.
