Meet Honeysuckle, she is an AMAZING and truly beautiful handcrafted 1970s prairie dream in a gorgeous cotton and she is lined. This girl is the meaning of delicate, she has the most beautiful soft floral print with flecks of orange, blue and green, please see the close up photos for a true representation of the colours. She has an amazing classic prairie silhouette, with high neck, pintuck bust, voluminous sleeves and a swishing skirt with flounce. She has side ties attached to adjust fit and honestly, when worn, this beauty is a dream come true. She has got to be up there with my favourite handmade prairies I have ever found, she is truly one of a kind and I cannot wait to see how happy she makes one of you.

The Honeysuckle 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.
