1970S RARE WALLIS COTTON MIDI DRESS APPROX UK SIZE 10/12
Incredible 1970s cotton midi dress by Wallis in a vibrant berry shade with cool floral print. She has an insane silhouette with huge dagger collar, stunning sleeves and a nipped in waist. Unfortunately this beauty does have some flaws but is well worth some TLC! Her top button is missing from her bodice and underarm discolouration which I do believe will lift with an oxi soak.. I LOVE this dress but she has been in my repairs pile way too long, so I hope she finds the home she deserves! In better condition she would be priced at £80+.
This girl would work on UK sizes 10/12 best.
Bust - up to 38"
Waist - 34" - can be cinched with side ties
Length - 41"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.

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.
