The Decadence, she is an insanely rare 60s black velvet mini dream.
Decadence is truly truly special. These 60s dresses very rarely come up, as much as I hunt for them, they rarely come my way. This beauty has an amazing kaftan style cut with amazing sleeves and shimmering gold applique details around her sleeve edge and collar.
This girl would work on UK sizes 10/12 best.
Bust - 40"
Waist - 38" - this dress is very straight in shape.
Length - 55"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
Decadence has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be hand washed at home. 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.
