The Candy

The Candy,  she is a stunning 70s cotton prairie beauty by USA designer Vicky Vaughn. 

The Candy, YEE HAW! We love this western esque beauty here at Pansy, she has the most amazing novelty floral print, ric rac trims and elasticated neckline which can be worn on or off the shoulder.

This girl is quite flexible in size due to having an elasticated neckline and waist. She would work on UK sizes 8/10/12/14 best.

Bust - up to 40"

Waist - up to 36"

Length -  52"

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

The Candy 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, she does have some areas of novice sewing and other signs of wear. Still a very lovely and wearable piece. This has been reflected in her price.

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.
