The Blue Willow

The Blue Willow, she is a stunning 70s handmade cotton or cotton blend prairie dream maxi dress, she is lined.

The Blue Willow, she is the definition of a dream dress. She has the most magical silhouette, with huge sleeves with deep cuffs and super full sweeping skirt with a flounce to her hem. She has contrast blue chiffon stripes on a stunning china plate style floral print. The way this dress moves is pure magic, she is seriously one of our favourites ever here at Pansy. She has been handmade with so much love and care, she truly is a lifetime piece.

This girl is quite flexible in size due to her cut, we estimate she would work on UK sizes 8/10/12 best.

Bust - FREE due to the cut of her sleeves.

Waist - 30"

Length -  57"

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

The Blue Willow 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, she has a tiny small mark to the back of her bodice, see last photo for more.

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.
