The Della

Meet Della, she is an absolutely gorgeous rare cotton dream prairie picnic dress by Alldae. Della is just so cool. She has an absolutely amazing novelty patchwork style print on a red base with a contrasting ditsy floral. She has puff sleeves, a square neck, empire waist and a flowing skirt with a flounce. Della's cut is so easy breezy, she is the perfect picnic on a hot day dress and will look SO cool styled for it! I cannot wait to see where she is headed today!

This girl measures to approx UK size 12, possibly small busted 14. 

Bust - 37"

Empire Waist - 37" - very free fitting. 

Length -  56"

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

The Della 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.
