Meet Dove, she is a stunning and SUPER RARW collectible cotton prairie beauty by one of my favourite boutique labels of the time Dove Clothing Company. Honestly this beauty is an absolute treasure and I will be lucky to ever find this dress again, to be honest it is extremely rare to find any Dove Clothing pieces at all. She has a gorgeous soft tawny brown colour with a gorgeous swirly bird print and a stunning cut with frill neckline, empire waist, straight cap sleeves with frilled cuff and a full length flowing skirt with a flounce. Like all Dove Clothing dresses, her cotton is beautiful, probably unbleached, with a natural slub. I can't wait to see where this piece of fashion history is headed.. I just know she will be loved forever and ever.
This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 small 10 best

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