The Dorothy

The Dorothy,  she is a stunning 70s handmade cotton gingham prairie dream. She is not lined.

The Dorothy, she is one beautiful lady. She has a stunning floral and gingham cotton fabric, cute little peter pan collar with rose applique, puffy sleeves, 30s style bust line and flounce to her hem. We absolutely love this girl here at Pansy.

This girl measures to approx UK size 16/18, a super rare size for a prairie this good. She could also work on UK sizes 12/14 too, she has a tie back belt.

Bust - 42"

Waist - 36"

Length -  56"

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

The Dorothy  has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has some very 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.
