The Carnival

Meet Carnival, she is a stunning 1970s red cotton frilly dream, she is lined. Carnival really resembles a 1970s mexican dress, although she has no tags so I am not 100% certain of her origin. She has an amazing silhouette with nipped in waist, blousey loose fitting top and a super full skirt. She has the best ruffle and lace features and amazing puff sleeves. Carnival is bold, bright and beautiful, she is truly super unique and will look so beautiful when worn on a summers day.

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8, she could also work on a small waisted 10. 

Bust - up to 36"

Waist - 26.5" 

Length -  52.5" - will be slightly shorter when worn due to her waist pulling up.

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

The Carnival 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, she has a few minor signs of wear, including a few tiny black flecks here and there, see last photo for an example.

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.
