The Cascade

Meet Cascade, she is the most amazing SUPER RARE 1970s cotton prairie beauty with huge dramatic waterfall sleeves which have beautiful frilled edges. She has a pie crust collar with velvet detail, a gorgeous shaped waistband with tie back belt and a flowing skirt. Her print is an absolutely gorgeous delicate trellis like floral print in blues and greens on a white base. This beauty is an absolute fairy dream dress, and truly is super super special, these sleevie dream beauties very rarely come up for sale, and when they do they always head to the best homes.. I cannot wait to see where this beauty is headed!

This girl measures to approx UK size 10 small 12, could possibly work on an 8 too.

Bust - 38"

Waist - 30"

Length -  56"

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

The Cascade 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. 

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.
