The Desdemona

Meet Desdemona, she is a beautiful and very special late 60s early 70s gothic dream dress by Bindi of Melbourne. She is crafted in a beautiful velvet which has a more matte texture and has stunning contrasting white trim detailing. Desdemona has a true gothic cut, with a high collar, voluminous sleeves with deep shaped button cuffs and a full skirt with flounce, she also comes with a matching belt. I can't wait to see where Desdemona is headed, I know she will fulfill your gothic dreams!

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 best. Could possibly work on a UK 4 too. She has a more petite fit.

Bust - up to 35"

Waist - 28"

Length -  50"

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

The Desdemona has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be hand washed at home in cool water. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear.

ALL vintage velvet comes with small signs of wear to the pile of the fabric. This is part of the charm.

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.
