The Hickory Tree, she is a super super rare and collectible green hand crochet wool maxi dress.
The Hickory Tree, well we are pretty sure this beauty speaks for herself.. She is fully hand crocheted and was acquired from the daughter of the original maker who recalled her mother spending a very long time crafting this beauty throughout the early 70s. She has kimono style sleeves and a button up neck, her wool is soft and snuggly, not itchy! She is absolutely remarkable and undoubtedly a very very special piece.
This girl would work on UK sizes 6 - 10 nicely.
Bust - More or less free because of the cut of her kimono sleeves.
Empire Waist - 28" to 32"
Length - 54"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Hickory Tree has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. This girl is hand wash only.. 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.
