Meet Queen of Scots, she is a STUNNING and HOLY GRAIL RARE late 70s early 80s Liberty print wool blend dream dress by Droopy and Browns of York. This is a true and rare treasure to behold and one of those one of a lifetime finds, she really is the absolute pinnacle of Pansy Heirlooms. She is filled with truly amazing historical details such as those huge mutton sleeves and stunning corset bodice. She has a full dramatic skirt with front pockets and fabric covered button detailing down her front. Her colours and print are just divine and so moody. She definitely isn't for the faint hearted, and I cannot wait to see if she finds the home she deserves today.
This girl measures to approx UK size 10, could also possibly work on a UK size 8 or small 12.
Bust - up to 36"
Waist - 29"
Length - 52"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Queen of Scots has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can be hand washed and drip dried. 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.
