The Beech

Meet Beech, she is a gorgeous handmade 70s cotton prairie pinafore dress in a beautiful autumnal shade. Beech has a beautiful print, with scattered autumnal leaves and a stripe and beautiful cotton lace trims around her neckline, frill shoulders and skirt. She has a fitted bodice with waistband and a long full length skirt with a flounce. I love 70s pinafores, they are great for layering but could also be worn in warmer seasons on their own, I know she will be a staple in any vintage wardrobe!

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.
