The Butterfly

Meet Butterfly, the most epic 60s mini if there ever was one! This cotton dream by Shelena is truly something special and unique, just LOOK at that Butterfly print! She has an amazing silhouette with mutton style sleeves with deep lace cuffs, a lace bodice with square neck and a tie back belt which crosses over at her front. Butterfly is probably my favourite mini ever and can be worn for years and years to come. Minis like Butterfly are also very rare and hard to find.

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8/10 best, her sizing is quite flexible due to her cut.

Bust - up to 34" 

Waist - 32" quite a free fitting shape, can be drawn in with her attached ties.

Length -  38"

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

Butterfly 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.

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.
