The Birch

The Birch, she is a stunning super rare handmade vintage farmers smock in an olive green shade. She is made from cotton.

Birch is beautiful, she has an amazing structured silhouette with hand smocked details and a gorgeous collar. These original smock beauties are very rare, this one I am sure is quite old, possibly 30s/40s. 

This girl would work on UK sizes 12/14/16 best.

Bust - 44"

Waist - FREE

Length -  47"

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

Birch has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be hand washed at home. She is in good vintage condition, she has some minor signs of wear including a small area of fading to her sleeve, so faint, my camera couldn't pick it up.

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.
