The Ballet Slipper

Meet Ballet Slipper, she is an absolutely stunning handmade seersucker cotton prairie dream dress. She has an incredible silhouette, with amazing double layered puff sleeves with frill cuff, double flounce skirt and a beautiful ruffle collar. She has a long flowing skirt and a nipped in waist with attached side ties to cinch and she flows so beautifully. Her seersucker fabric is an absolute dream, with a gorgeous delicate pink floral on a white base. Ballet Slipper is a beautifully crafted one of a kind precious treasure, and she is absolutely a favourite from Pansy Romance this year, I hope she finds the home she deserves. 

This girl measures to approx UK size 12/14 - possibly 16.

Bust - up to 41"

Waist - 36" - can be cinched with side ties - does sit quite high

Length -  57"

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

The Ballet Slipper 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.
