Meet Power Purple, a truly amazing and RARE 60s cotton prairie dream by one of my favourite boutique labels of the time, Quad. This beauty is just epic, she has an amazing retro floral print, beautiful floral and velvet trims and contrasting cream panels to her neckline and flutter cuff sleeves. Power Purple will make an epic addition to any vintage lovers wardrobe for years and years to come.
This girl would work on UK sizes 10 small 12 best.
Bust - up to 38"
Waist - 31" - 32"
Length - 52"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
Power Purple 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 couple of tiny holes to her frill cuff area, these are very minor and unnoticeable, see last photo for an example.
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.
