The Dahlia

Meet Dahlia, she is a gorgeous rare 1970s cotton prairie beaut by Peterson Maid. Dahlia is super cute and super cool! She has a beautiful retro 70s floral print on a checked yellow base, sweet puff sleeves, a scoop neck, a tiered flowing skirt and an empire line waist with velvet ribbon feature. Dahlia is just so sweet and is one of my favourites from our Pansy Picnic edit, she is just so iconic to the era, I cannot wait to see where she is headed today.

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10

Bust - 34"

Waist - 30"

Length -  53.5"

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

The 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.
