Meet April, she is an absolutely truly gorgeous cotton 1970s prairie dream dress in the most gorgeous navy shade. April is aptly named after a lovely fellow Pansy Girl who passed this beauty onto me to rehome. She is absolutely STUNNING and truly one of my favourites ever. She has the most gorgeous classic prairie silhouette with nipped in waist, puff sleeves, a high collar and attached waist ties. She has the sweetest lace details and her yoke and her cuffs and the most beautiful clustered rose print. April is one of those classic and versatile prairies who will make you feel as beautiful as you are, she is honestly beautiful, I cannot wait to see where she is headed.
This girl measures to approx UK size 10 small 12, could possibly work on an 8 too.
Bust - 36"
Waist - 30"
Length - 57.5"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The April 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.
