Meet Flaxen, she is the sweetest ever handmade 1970s pinafore prairie dream. She is made from a stunning floral cotton and has a quilted bust and quilted patch pockets. Flaxen is honestly something special, she has the most gorgeous shape, with square neckline, empire line waist and a swooping skirt with flounce hem. I love love love her print, it really is the most delicate of dreamy florals! She is adorned in the sweetest little lace trims which add just that perfect romantic edge. Flaxen is VERY special, she is absolutely one of a kind, and the kind of prairie I know I will never see again. I hope she finds the best home, I know she will bring whomever rehomes her so much joy.
This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 best
Bust - 34" - due to the quilting in her bust she would worn on smaller measurements easily.
Empire Waist - 30"
Length - 60"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Flaxen 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.
