Meet Rosales, a stunning 1980s romantic dream. This beauty has been handmade, her fabric feels like a beautiful quality cotton and wool blend, with delicate rose print. Rosales has the most amazing silhouette, with princess bodice, puff sleeves and a super full skirt which is truly romantic. She has delicate lace trims and a beautiful large tie back sash belt. She is an absolute romantic dream indeed.
This girl would work on approx UK sizes 8 small 10 best.
Bust - up to 33"/34"
Waist - 29" can be cinched with sash tie belt.
Length - 60"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
Rosales 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 does have a few faint marks, they will probably lift another another few washes and her seams at her back waist are off slightly, bit once the belt is tied this is totally covered. See last two photos 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.
