The Paisley

Meet Paisley, she is a STUNNING and truly rare velvet midi dream dress by Annie Gough at Gemini. She is beautifully crafted from a thick rich cotton velvet and has a gorgeous rusty toned paisley print with contrasting black panels. She has a beautiful cut with kimono style sleeves and a deep open neckline with a mandarin collar and a full skirt with gathered waist. Like ALL of Annie's pieces, she is of supreme quality and craftsmanship. I cannot wait to see how loved she is in her next abode. 

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10.

Bust - up to 36"

Waist - 29"

Length -  47"

 For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6. 

The Paisley has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Dry clean only. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear. Like ALL vintage velvet she does have some minor flaws to the pile of her fabric. I believe she once would have had a tie at her neckline, although it is totally unnoticeable that it has been removed.

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.
