The Curios

The Curios, she is an absolutely AMAZING rare late 60s early 70s prairie dream by Alexander Clare. She is made from cotton and is not lined,

Curios is a true curiosity. She has the most amazing print, with scattered cameo heads, white trims and a stunning victoriana prairie silhouette with high neck, nipped in waist and slightly puffed sleeves. Honestly this beauty is truly outstanding, we cannot wait to see where she carries on her next life.

This girl measures to approx a UK size 8/10.

Bust - 34" - 35"

Waist -28"

Length -  52"

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

Curios has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please wash her on a cold wash at home. She is in good vintage condition.

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.
