Amazing and a true one off 70s satin fabric beetle print gown, probably a house dress. It has EPIC sleeves which are so biba esque and a beautiful collar. This is a really cool piece. Would look amazing worn open too as a duster. This is one of those just super unique pieces that you know you will never see again!
This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10 - due to the cut could also work on a 6 with a loose fit, or a small 12 with a more fitted look. Has a loose shape.
Bust - up to 40"
Waist - 34"
Length - 56"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
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, she has a button missing which has left a small hole, some small holes to a cuff and a few light marks, without these flaws this beauty would be at least £135, she is still totally wearable as is.
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.
