Meet Water Lily, she is a super beautiful and super rare 1970s cotton prairie dream in a comfortable trapeze shape by one of the most coveted British boutique labels of the time, Emcar. She is beautifully crafted in Liberty cotton with the most gorgeous print. She has beautiful ribbon trims around her bodice and the flounce of her skirt and long flowing ribbons down her front and back. Her silhouette is beautiful and so easy to wear, with a trapeze smock shape and beautiful ruffle shoulder detailing. This beauty is a dream and is such an amazing example of Emcars work. She is so unique and truly is a treasure to behold..
This girl is flexible in size due to her cut but would work on UK sizes 8/10/12 best.
Bust - up to 35" / 36"
Waist - FREE
Length - 56.5"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Water Lily 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.
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.
