The Dahlia Pinnata

The Dahlia Pinnata, she is a STUNNING 70s neon dream prairie beauty. She is a handmade cotton blend girl and she is lined.

The Dahlia Pinnata, she is the most colourful Pansy beauty there is. She has an amazing large scale floral print in a combination of electric and pastel tones, giant lantern sleeves, frills galore and a velvet ribbon bow at her waist. It is so rare to get a cotton prairie dress on this shape and colourway. Although this girl is handmade she is very rare and desirable. She is quite simply one of the best colourful prairies we have had here at Pansy.

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10.

Bust - 34"

Waist - 28"

Length -  57"

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

The Dahlia Pinnata has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. 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.
