The Beatrice

Meet Beatrice, she is a beautiful 1970s handmade cotton victoriana gothic dream dress. Beatrice is the perfect floral addition to Pansy Heirlooms, she is also completely one of a kind. She has a remarkable silhouette, with high neckline, straight sleeves and a dramatic ruffled tiered skirt. She has a pearl button closure down her front, and a wrap feature at her waist which closes with snap fasteners, she also has sweet broderie white frills around her collar and cuffs. I love Beatrice, she is a dark romantic dream, and I cannot wait to see where she is headed..

This girl would work on UK sizes 10/12 best.

Bust - up to 37"

Waist - 32"

Length -  54"

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

The 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 a few minor signs of wear, she has very slight fading in places, this is hardly noticeable and does 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.
