Meet Sweet Matilda, she is the most beautiful late 1970s handmade textured cotton prairie delight. Matilda has the most unbelievable silhouette, with huge dramatic ruffles around her yoke and shoulders and a super full swooping skirt. She has a gorgeous illustrative contrasting blue floral print on a paler blue base and is truly a blue beauty indeed. Matilda is a firm fave from our collaboration and we can't wait to see where she is headed..
This girl would work on UK sizes 12/14 best.
Bust - 38"
Waist - 32" - comes with matching belt so can be drawn in to fit.
Length - 55"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Matilda 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.
