Carnation is just beautiful. She is a rare hand knitted chunky Austrian cardigan with the most stunning intricate knit details, embroidered flowers and coloured pink and green trim. Most likely made of wool. This beauty is just quite literally amazing, she is a cardigan for a lifetime and absolutely a precious piece to behold.
This girl would work on UK sizes 12/14 best.
Bust - 42"
Length - 24"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
Carnation has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please hand wash only and lay flat to dry. 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.
