The China Plate

Meet China Plate.. this rare Marion Donaldson 1970s prairie delight truly is as pretty as a picture indeed.. She is crafted in a delicate cotton voile with blue trims and is lined. She has sweet flutter sleeves, flowing skirt with flounce and a tie back belt and a gorgeous square neckline. She has the most beautiful toile de jouy style delicate print, with flowers and musical instruments in blue, on an off white base. She is truly truly something special, in all of my time selling vintage I have never came across a Marion Donaldson dress like this one. I can't wait to see how happy she makes one of you..

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

Bust - 34"

Empire Waist - 28"

Length -  52"

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

The China Plate 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.
