The Cedarwood, she is an absolutely stunning super rare 70s cotton prairie beauty by fantastic Scottish designer of the period Marion Donaldson.
Cedarwood is truly a special Pansy! She has the most amazing statement silhouette, with huge voluminous puff sleeves, velvet bodice and cuffs, and the most stunning stripe fabric which is chevroned on the skirt, This beauty is really amazing, the thing I love most is her colour, so autumnal, just like our streets!
This girl measures to approx UK size 10/12 possibly a small 14, please see measurements below.
Bust - up to 36" - 38" approx, hard to measure due to the cut of her sleeves.
Empire Waist - 33" - 34"
Length - 56.5"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
Cedarwood has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. She is in good vintage condition.
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.
