The Twinkle in My Eyes, she is a gorgeous and super super rare lurex dream dress by Marian Russell. She is lined.
The Twinkle in My Eyes.. I mean, where do we even begin with this beauty? She quite simply has it all. She has a dreamy ethereal silhouette with huge batwing style sleeves, a full draped cut skirt, embellished bodice and cuffs and a stunning tie at her back neck. This dress is the true meaning of a forever dress, shining light on this festive season and many more to come.
This girl would work on UK sizes 8-12 easily.
Bust - Approx 36" (very hard to measure due to the cut of her sleeves)
Waist - Free up to 32"
Length - 57"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Twinkle in My Eyes has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be hand washed at home. She is in goodvintage condition, the only flaws to note are she has a few small minor pulls, to be honest with the fabric being lurex they are extremely unnoticeable and blend in well and the underarms of her lining is discoloured, this is in a forgiving place and wont be noticeable when worn.
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.
