Say Hello to Language of Flowers, the most beautiful and insanely rare 1970s dream by fantastic designer of the time Angela Gore. She is beautifully crafted from cotton and has gorgeous cotton lace and green velvet trims. The thing I love the most about this dream is that print, I mean, where do I even start? It reminds me of those gorgeous vintage botanical drawings we all love, and really does speak to me on so many levels. She has a lovely shape with mutton style puff shoulders, a scoop neck and a nipped in waist which ties with her ribbon waist feature. I love Language of Flowers so much, she is truly a very special piece and I cannot wait to see where she is headed.
This girl would work on UK sizes 12 best

For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
Language of Flowers 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, including a few very faint and irrelevant small marks.
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.
