Meet Skies, she is a stunning 1970s handmade prairie cotton dream in the most beautiful shade of sky blue. She has a gorgeous silhouette, with flutter sleeves, open V neckline, a full skirt with flounce and attached side ties to cinch for fit. She is adorned in the most beautiful thick cotton lace trims and she hangs beautifully. Skies is an absolute summers day bohemian dream and I cannot wait to see where she ends up...
This girl is quite a flexible one, I think she would work on approx UK size 10/12 best.
Bust - 38"
Waist - 29"
Length - 59"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Skies 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 including a minor mark to the lower end of skirt at the side seam, see last photo, this is very minor and 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.
