The Dahlia

Meet Sweet Dahlia, a beautiful handcrafted 1970s cotton prairie dream in the sweetest shade of pink ever. This beauty is just amazing in every way. She has an unbelievable silhouette with huge lantern sleeves, pie crust frill neck and a high waist. She is adorned with floral trims and the most amazing floral print. I just LOVE Dahlia, she is probably one of my favourite Pink prairies ever, I know she will make her new owner VERY VERY happy!

This girl would work on UK sizes 8/10  best

Bust - 36" 

Waist - 30" - does sit quite high

Length -  55"

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

Dahlia 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.
