Meet Botany, she is a beautiful rare 1970s cotton midi dress by collectible label Annie Gough at Gemini. Botany has the BEST illustrative botanical floral print ever, and it is a perfect winter floral! She has a light grey base tone, lilac buttons and a beautiful silhouette with huge billowing sleeves, a nipped in waist and a full skirt. Botany could be styled up to look perfectly festive but also would look totally amazing worn across other seasons too, she is just a perfect and classic Pansy dress!
This girl measures to approx UK size 10 small waisted 12.
Bust - up to 39" approx, hard to get an exact measurement due to the cut of her sleeves.
Waist - 29"
Length - 46"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Botany 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.
