Meet Forest, she is a STUNNING and SUPER RARE 1970s thick wale cord dream dress in a stunning shade of green by coveted British boutique label Bluestocking, which was sold in Liberty at the time. This is a very rare and collectible dress. Forest has a stunning understated silhouette with high collar, nipped in waist with side ties and beautiful sleeves. Her fabric is divine and super soft and of course that colour is magnificent. Forest is one of those dresses you can wear and love forever, she is timeless and amazing quality. I hope she finds an amazing home.
This girl measures to approx UK size 10/12 would also work nicely on a UK 8.
Bust - up to 38"
Waist - 32" - can be cinched with side ties
Length - 58"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Forest 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. One button on her cuff has been replaced.
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.
