The Marcel, she is an absolutely AMAZING super rare thick wool prairie wonder by Marcel Fenez. She is lined.
Marcel is quite frankly amazing. She is made from a stunning structured thick woven wool fabric and has the most insane print. She has huge statement voluminous sleeves with deep cuffs and she has cotton lace frills around her cuffs and also around her collar. She has a stunning blue velvet ribbon waist sash. This beauty is extremely special and honestly super super rare, wool prairies rarely come up, and especially not in this size!
This girl measures to approx a UK size 14.
Bust - 40"
Waist - 34"
Length - 54"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
Marcel has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please hand wash in cool water or have her dry cleaned. She is in goodvintage condition, she has some marks to her lining but these really are very minor.
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.
