The Dusk

Meet Dusk, she is a stunning 1970s cotton prairie dress in a lovely trapeze smock shape. Dusk is gorgeous, and it is so rare to find prairie dresses in a flowing silhouette like this. She has a high collar, pintuck yoke and flutter sleeves with sweet cotton lace trims. She has a cream base colour with a dusky blue and purple clustered floral print. What I love most about Dusk is how she could be styled with a belt too, giving a total different vibe. She is just lovely!

This girl is flexible in size due to her cut but would work on UK sizes 10/12/14 possibly 16.

Bust - up to 40"

Waist - FREE

Length -  55"

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

The Dusk 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.
