Meet Nancy, she is a stunning and totally unique prairie dream dress. She is made from what feels like crepe to her skirt and a cotton to her top, she is also lined and is beautiful quality. Nancy is a wild girl, and is definitely a statement, she is in no way for the faint hearted! She is wonderfully unique and absolutely one of a kind. She has an amazing ruffled yoke with contrasting stripes and polkadot prints and is covered in applique flowers, velvet ribbons and brown lace trims. Nancy is one of those vintage dresses which you know could never be replicated, and know will never be found again. She really is what vintage should be all about, and that is statement and one off pieces. I hope she finds the home she deserves.

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.
