The October Blooms, she is an absolutely gorgeous 1970s cotton prairie cutie.
October Blooms is the sweetest of them all. She has the most gorgeous cut with peter pan collar yoke, puff sleeves, sweetheart bust line which is super flattering and almost 30s in cut with ruching around the underbust and gorgeous puff sleeves with lace trim. She has a stunning vibrant clustered floral print on the most stunning brown base colour. We truly love this beauty here at Pansy, she is the bloom for October indeed.
This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8/10 best.
Bust - 34" - 35"
Waist - 27" - 28"
Length - 57"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The October Blooms has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. She is in goodvintage condition, she has a minor mark to the back side of her collar, really noticeable and does not detract. See last photo for more.
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.
