Meet Clematis, she is a stunning 1970s handmade prairie beauty. Clematis is crafted in gorgeous floral cotton with a contrasting purple yolke. She has huge statement sleeves with keep cuffs, a nipped in flattering waist and a full swooping skirt. Her print is truly beautiful and so springy!
This girl would work on UK sizes 14 small 16 best.
Bust - 40"
Waist - 33"-34"
Length - 61"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
Clematis has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Dry clean only. She is in good vintage condition, she does have some faint colour run on one shoulder, sadly this happened while cleaning her, and I am GUTTED, but it really isn't too noticeable. She has a few other signs of wear and a couple of faint small marks. Clematis is a very very rare girl, prairies practically never come up in this size. Her flaws have been DRAMATICALLY reflected in her price. See last photo.
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.
