Meet Juliette, she is the most incredible and RARE late 60s early 70s cotton prairie beauty by one of my favourite labels of the time, Quad. She has the most stunning silhouette, with juliet sleeves, empire line waist, open neckline and back, velvet ribbon at her waist and the most stunning floral print. This beauty is extremely special, she is one of those iconic vintage dresses that I just know I'll be lucky to source again. I can't wait to see where she is headed.
This girl would work on UK sizes 8/10 best. Please note her sleeves have been pinned to fit the mannequin.
Bust - 35"
Empire Waist - 29"
Length - 55.5"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Juliette 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.
