The Dawn

Meet Dawn, she is a stunning and rare 1970s smock dress by coveted designer of the period David Silverman. This beauty is outstanding and so easy to wear. She is crafted in beautiful mixed Liberty prints, in what feels like a soft cotton and wool blend viyella style fabric.Her cut is floaty and her fabric is breathable, making her so perfect for the warmer months. 

This girl is flexible in size due to her cut but would work on UK sizes 6/8/10 best.

Bust - up to 38" / 39"

Waist - FREE

Length -  43"

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

The Dawn 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.
