The Currant

Meet Currant, an amazing classic prairie dream with beautiful striped print by English Lady. She is made from a gorgeous cotton feel terylene fabric. Currant has a phenomenal silhouette, with amazing super full skirt, shaped sleeves and frill collar. Her colour and print are truly phenomenal, she also has pretty fabric covered buttons down her centre bodice. She is a really beautiful example of a 70s prairie dress indeed.

This girl would work on UK size 12, possibly a small waisted 14.

Bust - 40" 

Waist - 30" - 31"

Length -  57.5"

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

Currant 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 one tiny hole on one sleeve, so small it is barely visible to the naked eye. Does not detract and has been reflected in her price.  See last photo for more.

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.
