Meet Vera, she is a beautiful deadstock dark floral smock dress by Young Edwardian. She is made from a soft flowy rayon (viscose) which has a cotton feel. This beaut is gorgeous, I know I have lots of smock dress lovers over here, and this beauty is indeed a goodie! She has a beautiful broadscale floral print in a moody colourway, puffed sleeves and a rounded collar. She also has pockets! Team with boots for the ultimate dark romantic look!
This girl is quite flexible in size due to her cut, would work on UK sizes 8-14 depending on preference.
Bust - up to 44"
Waist - FREE
Length - 49"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Vera has been freshly steamed and can be worn. She still has her original tags attached. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. 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.
