Meet Chantilly, she is the most beautiful and rare cotton blend prairie by Richard Shops, she is lined. Chantilly is a real romantic dream dress, she has a beautiful shirred bodice, which is SO flattering, flutter sleeves, frill peplum at her waist, shirred high collar and a flounce to her hem. Her print and colours are an absolute dream come true, with a soft cream base and a beautiful delicate clustered broadscale floral print. This beauty is VERY special. She is one of those dresses which will look amazing, for years and years to come, she is totally timeless.
She is very flexible in size due to having stretch in her bodice. She would work on sizes 8-12/14 nicely.
Bust - stretches from 32" - 38" possibly 40" comfortably.
Waist - stretches from 26" - 34" comfortably.
Length - 60"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
Chantilly 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.
