Meet Hyacinth, she is an amazing and rare Marion Donaldson late 70s early 80s midaxi dream dress crafted in a Liberty cotton. This beauty is gorgeous and the perfect dress to wear for a relaxed look with trainers or dressed up! She can also easily transcend through seasons. She has a gorgeous silhouette with nipped in waist, voluminous sleeves and fabric covered button front. She has attached waist ties to cinch the waist and a zip back. Her print is a divine abstract floral and she has the sweetest piped detailing. Hyacinth is gorgeous and truly is a rare treasure to behold. I cannot wait to see where she is headed today!

The Hyacinth 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.
