Meet Barley, she is an absolutely stunning 1970s heavy cotton prairie dream dress by Shubette. This beauty is just gorge, she has a gorgeous shape with a round neckline, puffy full length sleeves with frill cuffs and a nipped in waist with side ties to cinch. She has a cream base colour with brown floral print and beautiful brown cotton lace detailing on her bodice, cuffs and neckline. Barley is a true and classic 1970s cotton prairie, she will look so beautiful teamed with boots this season and I just know she will be loved in her next home!
This girl would work on UK sizes 12/14 possibly 16 best.
Bust - up to 41"
Waist - 34" - can be cinched with attached side ties.
Length - 56"
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 at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear, including some extremely faint marks in places, mainly to the side of her bodice. These are a faint cream colour and absolutely blend in, they are barely noticeable (they wouldn't show up on my photos) and do not detract.
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.
