The Chelsea Girl

The Chelsea Girl,  she is a stunning and super rare original early 1970s mini dress by Chelsea Girl. She is made from a cotton blend fabric and is not lined.

The Chelsea Girl, she we just love this girl here at Pansy. She has the most stunning smocked details around her bust and cuffs, a square neck, puff sleeves, stunning retro print and puff sleeves. This girl is extremely rare and special, original Chelsea Girl pieces are super rare and coveted and truly part of British fashion history.

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8 small 10, could also work on a UK size 4 nicely.

Bust - 30" - 34" possibly a little more room due to stretch in the smocking.

Waist - FREE

Length -  36"

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

The Chelsea Girl 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.

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.
