The Birds and Blooms

Meet Birds & Blooms, she is an absolutely amazing handmade 1970s dream dress, beautifully made in a gorgeous cotton, which I suspect is a Liberty print, filled with florals and sweet birds.. This is an absolute stunner of a dress, and one of those one of a kind finds I promise you will not see again. She has an epic silhouette with square neckline and delectable flutter sleeves. She has sweet pintuck detailing and dreamy pink ribbon trims. She is an absolute treasure, wonderfully made and a lifetime find.. I hope she heads to the best home to be worn and loved once again.. 

This girl measures to approx UK size 12/14

Bust - up to 48"

Waist - 33" - does sit high

Length -  55.5"

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

The Birds & Blooms 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.

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.
