Meet Sweet Pea, she is a truly beautiful 1970s cotton blend prairie delight, she is lined. This girl is just super sweet, she has a gorgeous silhouette, with puff sleeves, tiered skirt, nipped in waist and a square neckline. She has a white base with a scattered groovy retro floral print in the most lovely pastel shades and is adorned in cute little flower trims. Sweet Pea is such a lovely classic and wearable prairie, I know she will be loved for many years to come..
This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 best.
Bust - 34"
Waist - 26"
Length - 57"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Sweet Pea 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 small darned up mend on one shoulder, which is very neatly done, and a couple of tiny faint small marks, none of this detracts, she is an absolutely gorgeous dress. See last two photos.
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.
