The Annie

Meet Annie, she is an absolutely gorgeous and truly rare beautiful silk midaxi length dream dress by Lyn Ashworth, she dates from the late 70s early 80s. Annie is a true romantic beauty, adorned in the sweetest lace frills with a beautiful silhouette. She has a blousey cut top with an elasticated nipped in waist and a flowing skirt, her sleeves have a slightly puffed shoulder. She would look beautiful worn with a sash belt, and I just know she will be loved wherever she is headed. 

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10 small 12.

Bust - up to 38"

Waist - stretches up to 32"

Length -  50"

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

The Annie has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Hand wash or dry clean only. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear. She has belt loops so probably originally had a matching belt, this does not detract.

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.
