The Hawthorn Tree, she is a super rare 1970s cotton prairie maxi dress. She is not lined.
The Hawthorn Tree has beautiful smocked shirring around her neckline and cuffs. She is smocky in shape from the bust down with a tie back belt. She has puffed sleeves and the most stunning floral print. This beauty is simply gorgeous and vintage shirred dresses like this are hard to come by, she is a true Pansy gem.
This girl is very flexible in size and would work on UK sizes 8-12 nicely, could also possibly work on a UK 6 as she has a tie back belt.
Bust - 32" to 38"
Waist - Free
Length - 55.5"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Hawthorn Tree 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.
