Meet Conch, she is a stunning cream natural raw cotton gauze prairie dream dress in midi length. Conch is unbelievable, she has the most amazing silhouette with huge batwing sleeves with frill cuff, nipped in elasticated waist and a full tiered skirt. She has a frill lace collar, sweet little tie at her neckline and buttons down her front. It is so rare to find beauties like this one, she is one of my favourite midi dresses ever and is an absolute bohemian dream..
This girl is flexible in size due to her cut but would work on UK sizes 6/8/10 small 12 best.
Bust - up to 38"
Waist - stretches up to 32"
Length - 48"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Conch 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.
