The Chantilly

Beautiful Chantilly, a soft natural calico cotton romantic prairie dream. Chantilly is truly a really beautiful special piece indeed. She has the most gorgeous delicate details, with lace panels and corset tie feature at her bust. She has a stunning romantic silhouette with scoop neck, straight sleeves, empire line waist and flounce to her skirt. This beauty is fantastic quality and has been crafted beautifully.

This girl would work on UK sizes 8/10 best. Possibly could work on a UK 6 too. She has a corset bust so can be adjusted to fit.

Bust - 36" 

Empire Waist - 30"

Length -  54"

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

Chantilly 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.

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.
