The Chestnut

Meet Chestnut, she is a gorgeous 1970s bohemian dream crafted in a beautiful quality cotton. Chestnut is beautiful, she has a lovely autumnal floral print with contrasting black panels, an attached belt with sweet tie detail and beautiful ricrac detailing. Her silhouette is gorgeous, with an elasticated frill neckline which can be worn on and off the shoulder, puff sleeves, a nipped in waist and a flowing tiered skirt. Chestnut is an absolute piece of me, I love these autumnal dark tones, and she has that perfect bohemian vibe for the end of summer. 

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 small 10 best.

Bust - up to 40" - quite flexible due to the cut of her bodice.

Waist - 29"

Length -  58"

 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 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.
