Say hello to ALICE.. She is a new LIMITED EDITION style for my special AW23 Made by Pansy release ~ The Reincarnated Dresses..
Alice is the cherished sister of my ever so loved Betsy dress, who still remains a best selling style since her original launch date last year.. This time around, she has been made in a new mini length (although we can still totally make her longer too)! Alice is perfectly gothic and playful, and is perfectly reminiscent of those precious 60s and 70s gothic minis we all LOVE so much! After four Heirlooms vintage collections, it has become starkly apparent how rare those are, which gave all of the ammunition needed to reincarnate one just for you..
She has an adorable silhouette, with square neckline with amazing delicate lace frill feature, beautiful voluminous poet sleeves with frill cuffs, fitted bodice with high waistline and side ties to cinch, and a super full skirt with sweet small frill hem finish, and of course, she has POCKETS! This is just a PERFECT forever dress, to dazzle any occasion, and will forever look just as beautiful.. One of the things I have always adored about my Heirlooms collections is the mix of gothic and feminine, those sweet lace frills are everything, and I do believe Alice is the perfect Reincarnated Heirloom..
She is available to order in a choice of colours; wine (pictured here), forest or black, all of which are stunning and luxurious 100% cotton needlecord. While she is not true vintage, she has been crafted beautifully with a professional finish to truly replicate an original 1970s beauty, she truly is just as precious!
Our Made by Pansy line is in VERY limited supply and once we have used a fabric, we may never be able to recreate her again, all dresses are LIMITED EDITION. All dresses are MADE TO ORDER especially for you!
I would suggest dry cleaning this beauty due to the delicate nature of her lace trims, although any marks could easily be spot cleaned out.
HOW TO ORDER!
Please select your desired size, colour and approx length. All dresses are personal and handcrafted with love in England just for you, this means slight adaptations can be made to make them the perfect dress and so much more. Once you have selected your size, approx length and colour, please pop your exact length measurement, shoulder to hem, in the notes section at checkout. When she is made, we will then replicate this length. A good way of knowing your ideal length is to check on a dress you already own. Simply measure from the highest point of the shoulder to the hem. If you forget to do this please email us with your order number and length measurement. We CANNOT start on your order until we have ALL of your details!
ALL dresses ordered in mini length will have the same frill hem finish as Alice. Flounce sizes may slightly vary depending on your chosen length, they will either be bigger or smaller to balance out the skirt.
Please allow approx up to 4-6 weeks for your beautiful dress to be made (although this could be much sooner!). Once she is ready she will then be dispatched to you. This is SLOW fashion, please be patient while the magic is happening! If your beautiful dress is ready before the lead time, she will be shipped to you sooner. Trust me, Alice is absolutely worth waiting for..
Our Made by Pansy dresses are beautifully handcrafted by a small team of creators in England.
