Meet Afterdark, she is a beautiful and truly rare late 60s chiffon crepe beauty by Ann Byrne, she is crafted beautifully and is such good quality, her chiffon is possibly made from silk and she is lined. Afterdark has a stunning cut with fitted shimmering brocade corset style bodice, juliet sleeves, empire waist and a frill collar. She is adorned in super sweet trims and beaded detailing. I truly adore this dress, she is very me and teamed with shimmering shoes and accessories she will look a dream come true!
This girl measures to approx UK size 10/12
Bust - up to 37"
Waist - 32" does sit high
Length - 53"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Afterdark has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Dry clean only. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear including a tiny mend at her hem.
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.
