The Darby Rose

Say Hello to Darby Rose.. The most EPIC 1970s cotton prairie there ever was. This beaut is like NO OTHER and has quite literally stolen my heart. She is beautifully crafted in a romantic rose print cotton and has a gorgeous cut with scoop neck, lovely shaped sleeves and a nipped in waist with peplum. Do I even need to mention THE SMOCKING!!!! How amazing is this dress? You just simply cannot find dresses like this dream anymore. I cannot wait to see where she is headed, although secretly I would LOVE to keep her and if she fitted me, I would never part ways...

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 possibly small 10 best.

Bust - 35" 

Waist - stretches up to 29" - does sit quite high.

Length -  56"

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

Darby Rose 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, including very slight underarm yellowing.

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.
