The Brambles

The Brambles, she is an absolutely stunning super super special and rare handmade one of a kind prairie beauty. She is a cotton girl and is not lined.

Brambles is the star of the show. Beauties like Brambles very rarely come up for sale. She has the most extraordinary silhouette with huge huge sleeves, a huge sweeping skirt with metres upon metres of fabric, deep cuffs, cotton lace trims and a flounce to her hem. Her print is the most perfect autumnal one ever, with greens and oranges. Her fabric is of sublime quality and her construction of a sublime standard. This dream is a total rarity, one for the collectors and a dress for a lifetime.

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8 small 10.

Bust - up to 34" approx - really hard to measure due to the cut of her sleeves.

Empire Waist - 30" - 31"

Length -  54.5"

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

The Brambles 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.
