The Chestnut

The Chestnut, she is an absolutely stunning handmade 70s wool blend beauty in a midaxi length. She is not lined.

Chestnut is an absolute beauty. She has been handmade to an excellent standard with the most gorgeous wool blend fabric which is super soft and flowy. She has bell shaped Biba-esque sleeves, a bow tie feature to her neck and pintucked detail with flounce to her hem. Her print is absolute magic and truly an autumnal treasure. We really love this beauty and she is a firm fave from our AW season.

This beauty would work on UK sizes 12/14/16.

Bust - 44"

Waist - 36"

Length -  50"

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

The Chestnut 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.
