The Beatrice

Say hello to Beatrice, a rare 1980s statement pink dream by coveted and fantastic British designer of the time Droopy and Browns. This beauty is very unique, like all Droopy and Brown dresses and has been crafted with such care. She has statement mutton sleeves, an unusual neckline and a skirt which is gathered at the back with large bow tie. She is made from a gorgeous cotton which is possibly a Liberty fabric and is fantastic quality. 

This beauty is very unique and rare, I have never seen this cut in a Droopy and Browns dress.

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 best.

Bust - up to 34" 

Waist - 28"

Length -  51" at the front and 54" at the back.

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

Beatrice 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 some 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.
