Meet Lolanthe, she is a stunning cotton prairie dream by The Switch. Lolanthe is a gorgeous classic prairie, she has that silhouette we all love, with a high collar, nipped in waist and straight sleeves. She has a beautiful striped floral print which hits diagonal on the centre of the bodice, button detailing and gorgeous velvet ribbon trims. I love this one, she truly is the meaning of a prairie dress!
This girl would work on UK sizes 8/10 best.
Bust - up to 36"
Waist - 29"
Length - 54"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Lolanthe 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, she has a small sewn up mend to the side of her bodice under one arm, this is minor and does not affect wear. I have forgotten to photograph this but I promise it is barely noticeable and in such a discreet place!
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.
