The Cameo

The Cameo, she is an absolutely AMAZING super rare handmade stunning blue luxurious velvet late 60s early 70s gothic dream.

Cameo is actually amazing, I mean, when do you ever see beauties like this come up for sale? She has a stunning cut with fitted bodice and waist and a straight skirt with a beautiful soft velvet drape. She has a cameo emblem at her neckline with lace trims. This beauty is truly so rare and honestly such a treasure. She will always hold a strong place in my heart for being one of the best velvet dresses I've ever sourced, and I can't wait to see where she carries on her life.

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

Bust - 34"

Waist - 27"

Length -  57"

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

Cameo has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please  have her dry cleaned or spot clean as and when. Velvet is a luxurious fabric, please always treat her kindly.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.
