Beautiful 1970s black cotton maxi dress with contrasting panels, tiered skirt, corset bust and broderie details. Very very Gunne Sax! Such a lovely dress, has had a small repair to her back where the strap meets the bodice. Needs a good wash but will come up lovely, this is a really gorgeous dress.
This girl would work on UK size 12/14 best. Measurements taken with corset fully closed, could be loosened slightly.
Bust - 40"
Waist - 34"
Length - 55"
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.
