Meet Seafoam, she is a beautiful and rare 1970s cotton prairie dream dress by Topshop, whose designs of this period are one of the most coveted. Seafoam is a real treasure, with a beautiful flattering silhouette and delicate contrasting prints. She has a tiered flowing skirt, a square neckline with front bodice panel, sweet little cap puff sleeves and she has attached side ties to cinch the waist. Her colour is a soft and delicate green shade, which is so hard to fully describe. I know Seafoam will be very loved in her next home, she is timeless, wearable and truly beautiful.
This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 small 10 best.
Bust - 34"
Waist - 28" - can be cinched with side ties.
Length - 54"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Seafoam 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, she has some very very slight fading in places, this does not detract.
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.
