The Marion, she is an unreal 1970s brown tweed pinafore by 1970s sought after Scottish designer Marion Donaldson. Her bodice is lined.
The Marion has the most stunning heavy tweed fabric, she is just so versatile and would blend into any wardrobe a dream. She has ruffle details around her shoulders, a full sweep skirt and a thick waistband with zip and button side fastening. We absolutely love this girl here at Pansy, she is a very very special piece.
This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8, possibly a small waisted 10.
Bust - Free
Waist - 26"
Length - 57"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Marion has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be hand washed in cool water at home. She is in goodvintage condition.
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.
