Meet Floral Frames, she is a beautiful and rare 1970s prairie beauty by collectible label Pat Farrell. She is made from what feels like a cotton or cotton blend and is lined. Floral frames has a dreamy empire line silhouette with scoop neckline, stunning sleeves and a tiered skirt. She is adorned in beautiful velvet and lace trims and has a gorgeous botanical illustrative print. This is the kind of dress I just adore for my A/W chapters, she is romantic but also very muted, and truly is a very special piece, I hope she finds a lovely home!
This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8 could also possibly work on a UK 4 or small busted 10.
Bust - up to 33" - 34"
Empire Waist - 32"
Length - 58"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Floral Frames 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.
