The Dove, she is a STUNNING and super rare floral prairie delight by 70s cult label Quad. Her fabric seems like a cotton blend. She is lined.
The Dove, she is the epitome of an ethereal dream dress. She has the most stunning soft palette and print with green velvet ribbon waist feature. Her silhouette is remarkable, with pie crust neck, empire line cut, utterly stunning huge bishop sleeves and cotton lace trims. This dress is probably the best Quad dress we have had here at Pansy. She is an absolute forever dress.
This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10, could work nicely on a UK 6 too.
Bust - 34"
Under Bust - 30"
Length - 57.5"
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 hand washed at home, but we recommend removing the ribbon belt first and reattaching after, if not please spot clean or have dry cleaned. She is in excellent vintage condition with minimal 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.
