The Bella

The Bella, she is a stunning 70s cotton or cotton blend frilly prairie midi length dream.

The Bella, she is such a perfect easy breezy summers day dress! Her colour is rich and beautiful. She has the most stunning lacy features, ribbon trims and super full flouncy skirt.

This girl measures to approx UK size 4/6/8.

Bust - 30"

Under Bust - 27"

Length -  45"

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

The Bella has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. She is in good vintage condition, the only thing to note is she has some damage to her lace trim on her hem. This is really minor and unnoticeable.

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.
