The Crocus

Meet Crocus, she is a stunning 70s handmade dream prairie dress crafted in stunning Laura Ashley cotton. She has a dreamy silhouette with a high neckline, beautifully puffed sleeves, a super full skirt and a waist tie to cinch. She is white with stunning navy blue floral print which is just super beautiful. Her beautiful cotton is an amazing quality, just like all Laura Ashley fabrics and for being homemade she has been beautifully crafted, I hope she finds the best home today, she really is a one of a kind treasure..

This girl measures to approx UK size 10 small waisted 12, could possibly also work on a UK 8.

Bust - up to 38"

Waist - 28" - 29"

Length - 55.5"

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

The Crocus 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, including a few small marks in places.

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.
