Meet Oakley, she is a stunning and rare 1970s cotton prairie delight in the most stunning soft brown shade. She is crafted beautifully and her cotton is a lovely quality and weight. Oakley has a stunning cut, with squared neckline, beautiful shaped sleeves with frill cuffs and a nipped in waist with deep lace panel. She has a gorgeous scattered floral print with beautiful button detailing and sweet little lace trims. Oakley ticks all the boxes for my autumn winter season, she is gorgeous, timeless and wearable and is absolutely a firm fave from the collection.
This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 best.
Bust - up to 35"
Waist - 26"
Length - 56.5"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Oakley 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.
