The Aster

The Aster, she is a stunning 70s cotton smock midaxi length sundress from Hawaii. She is not lined.

The Aster, she really is a beauty! She has a stunning pink floral ditsy print on a purple base cotton fabric, broderie anglaise panels and bright pink ribbon trim around her skirt. Hawaiian dresses are so rare and this beauty is such a good version of such!

This girl is quite free fitting other than her bust. Best recommended for UK sizes 6-10.

Bust - 34"

Waist - FREE

Length -  52"

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

The Aster has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. She is in good vintage condition.

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.
