Say hello to Damson.. She is a new LIMITED EDITION style for my special SS23 Made by Pansy release ~ The Ribbons and The Bows.. 

Damson is designed to be an imaginative and historical inspired dream dress, emblazoned in bows, ribbons and interesting features, taking influences from ladies of the past centuries and 60s and 70s historical inspired fashion. During the late 60s and early 70s high end boutique designers such as Rumak and Sample, Annie Gough, Gina Fratini, Thea Porter, Laura Ashley and many more all created designs with historical influences which were ripe with charm, interesting features and were adorned in the most wondrous detailing, and these pieces have now became the rarest and most precious of all.

Whilst designing for this years Pansy Romance I knew I wanted to create something romantic, but in a less typical sense, something which is fresh and exciting, Damson is a truly unique piece of magic, and is something you cannot find again..

Damson has a more structured and statement silhouette, with puffed shoulders and a  squared neckline like you see ladies in historical paintings wearing.. She has a high waist with super full skirt with pockets, side ties to cinch, mutton sleeves with the most amazing big velvet frill cuffs with satin frill detailing and of course, an utterly statement self tie satin bow, which can be tied how you wish. I have seen wonderful self tie bows on several of Gina Fratinis designs, and smaller versions on Laura Ashley dresses, which is where the inspiration was derived from for this feature, SS24 is also going to be bow season and Damson will truly fulfil your all your bow dreams.. If you aren't feeling the bow energy, she can also be ordered WITHOUT bow if you wish, just pop a note in the notes section at checkout. 

Damson can also be ordered in midi, midaxi and maxi lengths, and would look totally amazing!

She is crafted in a floral cotton poplin with shantung satin bow and vintage plum cotton velvet cuffs with ribbon ties on the inner side to tie the cuffs together. Damson can also be ordered in another colourway, please read the spec below to understand the combinations and select your desired colourway above.

Whilst she is not true vintage, she has been crafted beautifully with a professional finish to truly replicate an original 1970s beauty, she truly is just as precious!

Our Made by Pansy line is in VERY limited supply and due to each of the Ribbons and Bows dresses incorporating an element of true vintage fabric, these dresses are even more LIMITED EDITION than ever before, once they are sold out they will NOT be replicated in this colourway again. All dresses are MADE TO ORDER especially for you!

Damson is crafted with a range of interesting and unusual fabrics, she is delicate in nature and truly precious, please treat her gentle with love and care. Dry clean only and steam when needed.

HOW TO ORDER!

Please select your desired size, colourway and approx length. All dresses are personal and handcrafted with love in England just for you, this means slight adaptations can be made to make them the perfect dress and so much more. Once you have selected your size, approx length and colour, please pop your exact length measurement, shoulder to hem, in the notes section at checkout, along with your selected ribbon colour. When she is made, we will then replicate this length.  A good way of knowing your ideal length is to check on a dress you already own. Simply measure from the highest point of the shoulder to the hem. If you forget to do this please email us with your order number and length measurement. We CANNOT start on your order until we have ALL of your details!

ALL dresses ordered in mini length will have the same frill hem finish as Damson. Flounce sizes may slightly vary depending on your chosen length, they will either be bigger or smaller to balance out the skirt.

Please allow approx up to 4-6 weeks for your beautiful dress to be made (although this could be much sooner!). Once she is ready she will then be dispatched to you. This is SLOW fashion, please be patient while the magic is happening! If your beautiful dress is ready before the lead time, she will be shipped to you sooner. Trust me, Damson is absolutely worth waiting for..

Our Made by Pansy dresses are beautifully handcrafted by a small team of creators in England. This means our manufacturing process is as sustainable as possible for our system, with fair pay, low carbon emissions, meanwhile boosting our local economy and industry by supporting fellow indie creatives. This also means we aren't mass producing garments and having wastage! YAY!
