The Chennai

Meet Chennai, she is a beautiful and very wearable 1970s prairie beauty, her body is crafted from cotton and the white panels on her sleeves and yoke are made from a lightweight man made fibre. She has a stunning wallpaper stripe paisley print in gorgeous rich tones, side ties to cinch the waist and gorgeous cotton lace trims. Chennai is very wearable and would look great layered with a knit and some boots for the winter season. 

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8 small 10.

Bust - up to 34"

Waist - 27"

Length -  53.5"

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

The Chennai 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.
