The Bougainvillea

The Bougainvillea, she is a stunning 70s cotton blend prairie by Ladies Pride. Her skirt is lined and her top is not. 

The Bougainvillea, her print and colours are just divine, with an indian style print and neon bright tones. She has a stunning silhouette with a high neck, puff sleeves and super full skirt.  We love this girl here at Pansy and she is like no other we have had!

This girl measures to approx UK size 12, could possibly work on a 10, see measurments.

Bust - 36"

Waist - 30"

Length -  55"

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

The Bougainvillea 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.

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.
