The Damask Rose, she is a super rare stunning 1970s prairie dream dress by the one and only Travers Tempos. She is a heavy cotton girl and is not lined.
The Damask Rose has the most amazing dramatic silhouette with the biggest mutton sleeves you will ever see. She has a gorgeous rustic print on a blue base with red tipping. She has a square neck with button bodice front and is to be pulled on over the head and fastens with a zipper to her side.
This is a super RARE and collectible dress, I have searched high and low for this dress for many years and I am delighted to finally be bringing her to Pansy.
This girl would work on UK sizes 8/10 possibly a small 12 best.
Bust - More or less free due to the cut of her sleeves, I would suggest 38" max.
Waist - 29"
Length - 53"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Damask Rose has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. We best recommend hand washing this beauty in cool water. She is in excellentvintage 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.
