The Botanical Beauty

Say Hello to the Botanical Beauty, the most beautiful and truly outstanding 70s cotton prairie dress. This beauty is absolutely one of a kind and is probably one of the prettiest dresses I have ever found. She has so many beautiful details I don't even know where to begin! Her oversized collar is so sweet, with that beautiful lace edging and little flower applique! She has a smocked bodice, cute sleeves with ruffle cuffs and the most gorgeous botanical print. She also has side ties attached to adjust fit. It's so rare we find beauties like this one, I cannot wait to see where she carries out the rest of her days...

This girl is quite flexible in size due to the stretch in her bodice, she would work on UK sizes 6/8/10 best.

Bust - up to 38" approx

Empire Waist-  up to 32" approx

Length -  55"

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

The Botanical Beauty 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.
