The Alexandrite Dress

The Alexandrite Dress, she is a gorgeous moire viscose taffeta beauty in an olive green shade by Vera Mont Paris. She is fully lined.

The Alexandrite Dress has the most gorgeous olive colour and fabric ever, with a subtle watermark effect. She has a stunning square neckline, puff sleeves and a gorgeous tiered skirt.

This girl measures to a UK size 6/8 possibly a small 10.

Bust - 33"

Waist - 26"

Length -  59"

For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6 and our model, the gorgeous Natasha is a UK 8/10 and 5"9 in height.

The Alexandrite Dress has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. This girl is dry clean only, do not attempt to wash at home. Spot cleaning can be done, please contact me for instructions as and when. She is in good vintage condition, she has a couple of very faint marks to her back and skirt, these are really barely noticeable and blend into her watermark effect. See last two photos for details.

She has minimal signs of vintage wear. But please bare in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all 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.
