The Cornflower

Meet Cornflower, she is a STUNNING 1970s prairie beauty, with an illusion pinafore and attached under-blouse. Her pinafore area is made from a stunning blue cotton corduroy with a lightweight and billowing chiffon style fabric blouse. She has beautiful frill details with broderie anglaise trims, and her silhouette is stunning with high collar and billowing sleeves. Cornflower is a true beaut indeed, and is one of those proper one of a kind beauties. I know she will be so loved in her next home!


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

Bust - up to 34"

High Waist - 29"

Length -  57.5"

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

The Cornflower 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, she has some slight fade in places, but is really is not too noticeable. 

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.
