The Cornflower

Meet Cornflower, she is an amazing and unreal super rare 1970s cotton prairie dream dress by Earlybird, this is a HOLY GRAIL piece, Earlybird are one of the best and most coveted British boutique labels of the time. This is always my favourite cut by Earlybird, with a stunning button bodice with low neckline, amazing puff sleeves and a super full flowing skirt with flounce. She is crafted in dreamy natural cotton with slight slub and has a beautiful illustrative floral print in white with touches of burgundy on a delicate cornflower blue base. This is the ONLY version of this dress I have ever seen in this colourway, she is RARE and absolutely a true treasure to behold. I hope she finds an amazing home today.

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10 - should also work on a UK 6 nicely.

Bust - up to 37"

Waist - 31"

Length -  56.5"

 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. 

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.
