The Bloodline

Meet Bloodline, she is an absolutely stunning and rare 1970s deep wine silky velvet dream dress by Fashion Mouse of Stratford upon Avon. I don't know much about this label, I believe they were a high end small boutique creating the most unique and outlandish pieces, every dress I have ever seen by this brand is always full of character and charm. This particular beauty is one of the most gorgeous velvet dresses I have had to date, and has such a trendy silhouette, very reminiscent of The Vampires Wife. She has cropped sleeves with frill cuffs, high collar and a beautiful flowing skirt with flounce. She is adorned in beautiful lace detailing and is just a true treasure to behold, she would also make the perfect festive dress! I know she will be well loved in her next abode.

This girl measures to approx UK size 10 small 12, could work on a UK 8.

Bust - up to 39"

Waist - 29" - 30" 

Length - 52"

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

The Bloodline has been freshly cleaned and is ready to wear. DRY CLEAN ONLY. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear.

ALL vintage velvet comes with small signs of wear to the pile of the fabric. This is part of the charm.

 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.
