The Zinnia, she is a stunning 70s USA made midaxi prairie in a cotton gauze, she is lined.
The Zinnia, she is just SO amazing and one of the best bright prairies we have ever had here at Pansy. She has the most amazing huge statement ruffle lace yoke, frilly pie crust neck, huge puff sleeves with deep lace cuffs and a ribbon sash waist feature. Zinnia's print is so amazing, it is a combination of vibrant pink and orange florals and she really is a true statement prairie. Colourful prairies of this calibre are very very rare.
This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8.
Bust - 32"

The Zinnia has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. She is in goodvintage condition, she has very slight discolouring to the back of her collar but this is almost invisible.
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.
