The Pink Witch, she is a stunning 70s cotton midaxi length beauty by David Rome. She has no composition labels but her bodice is velvet and her skirt and sleeves feel either like a wool or cotton blend.
Pink Witch is a real statement. She has amazing bright pink sleeves and yoke with corseted velvet bodice and a washed black floral skirt. She has amazing frill details at her shoulders and a pie crust neck.
This girl would work on UK sizes 6 small 8 best. Could possibly work on a UK size 4 too.
Bust - up to 33" - can be drawn in with her corset.
Waist - up to 28" - can be drawn in with her corset, sits quite high.
Length - 48.5"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Pink Witch 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 a few minor signs of wear including a flaw in her fabric at her hem. See last photo for more.
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.
