The Bloomsbury

Meet Bloomsbury, she is an absolutely gorgeous quality cotton handcrafted 1970s prairie beauty. Bloomsbury has so many of the sweetest details, with contrasting teal blue ribbon edging and bows at her cuffs, cotton lace trims and pintucks around her skirt. She has a super cute silhouette, with square neckline, puff sleeves and super full gathered skirt with flounce. Her print is the best ditsy floral, in a bluey green colourway. Bloomsbury is one of those classic and versatile prairie dresses, which could be dressed up or down. She is quite simply lovely, and I cannot wait to see how happy she makes one of you!

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10

Bust - 34"

Waist - 28" - 29"

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

The Bloomsbury 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.
