The Day Lily

Meet Day Lily, she is a beautiful 1970s cotton blend prairie delight, she is lined. This dress is PHENOMENAL! She has a truly epic statement silhouette with huge double layered billowing sleeves, tiered double layered skirt and a high collar. She has beautiful cotton lace trims and a sweet delicate spring floral print. Honestly, she is truly so unique and special, she would look so cool for a summer occasion or a toned down more casual look with trainers. I can't wait to see where she is headed!

This girl would work on UK sizes 6 small waisted 8 best.

Bust - 34"

Waist -  25" - 26"

Length -  55"

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

The Day Lily 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, she has a small faint mark on the back of her bodice.

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.
