The Anemone

Meet Anemone, she is a truly amazing and beautiful 1970s prairie dream in the most gorgeous and juicy red shade. Anemone is made from a gorgeous cotton and her sleeves and yoke are made from a chiffon style fabric. She has amazing thick cotton lace trims and a sweet tie detail at her neckline. Her print is a gorgeous floral stripe with blues and greens. Anemone is one of those super wearable prairies that could be worn up or down, she is a true summers dream dress indeed..

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8.

Bust - 33"

Waist - 26" - 27"

Length -  57"

 For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6. 

The Anemone has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. 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, including a couple of very small nicks to her sleeve and bodice. These are very minor and unnoticeable. I have sealed them with interfacing so they are secure and very unnoticeable.  See last two photos for more.

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.
