The Antoinette

Meet Antoinette, she is an absolutely beautiful 1970s handmade cotton romantic dream dress. Antoinette is adorned in an abundance of intricate dramatic ruffles and frills, which give her the best silhouette. She has the prettiest puff sleeves, a gorgeous square neck and the sweetest lace trims. She has a soft pink base tone with a beautiful floral print, and when worn she hangs so beautifully. Antoinette is the dreamiest dream there ever was, she is the definition of a one of a kind dream dress and I cannot wait to see where she is headed..

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10 could also work on a UK 6.

Bust - up to 35"

Empire Waist - 32"

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

The Antoinette 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.

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.
