The Florence, she is an unreal 1970s super rare prairie dress by one of my favourite 1970s designers, Travers Tempos. She is a natural raw cotton girl and is not lined.
The Florence has the most stunning silouette, with oversized frill pintucked bib, slighly puff sleeves with frill cuffs and a full sweep skirt. She has a rustic dainty print and brown lace edging. This dress is THE DREAM and is a fantastic example of a true 70s prairie.
This girl would work on UK sizes 10/12 best.
Bust - 36"
Waist - 30"
Length - 57"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6, she has been pinned to fit.
The Florence has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed on a 30 degree setting at home. She is in goodvintage 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.
