The Barley

The Barley, she is the Pansy AW20 dress of dreams and is a super RARE and collectible girl by Simon Ellis. She is a gauzy cotton girl and is fully lined.

The Barley, she has the most stunning ever silhouette with amazing shirred bodice, high neck and statement HUGE sleeves. She is in the most stunning soft autumnal palette with gorge floral print. Literally, what is not to love about this girl? She is the ultimate Pansy AW20 beauty.

This girl is quite difficult to measure due to the cut of her sleeves but estimated best for UK sizes 6 - 10.

Bust - 32" - 34" (this is an estimate), also has some give in the shirring of her bodice.

Empire Waist - 30"

Length -  59"

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

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

She has minimal signs of vintage wear. But please bare in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all 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.
