The Darling

Say Hello to Darling, the most beautiful and dreamy 1970s cotton prairie delight by rare USA made label Vicky Vaughn. This beauty really is a Darling little treasure isn't she.. She has the most beautiful overlay top, with bow and floral embroidered features, contrasting pink gingham check details at her tie shoulder straps which is then mirrored at a panel in her skirt and a beautiful soft flocked white body. Her bust line is elasticated making her super comfortable and easy to wear. Darling will be a go-to summer's dream dress for many years to come.

This girl is flexible in size, and would work comfortably on UK sizes 6,8 and 10.

Bust - up to 36"

Waist - up to 30" - does sit quite high

Length -  56.5"

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

The Darling 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.
