The Dusky Rose

Meet Dusky Rose, she is an INSANE and mega rare cotton prairie dream beauty by Samuel Sherman. This beauty is DIVINE and is wonderfully crafted, like all Sherman beauties. She has a gorgeous striped print, with a black base and contrasting soft dusky tones with an almost tapestry like rose print following down her stripes, which gives a real statement look. She has a nipped in waist, flutter kimono style sleeves, a wrap over shape bodice and a super gorge flowing skirt. I love Dusky Rose, she is so wearable and versatile, and is such a fantastic example of one of Shermans designs from the period.

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8.

Bust - 34"

Waist - 26" possibly 27”

Length -  56"

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

The Dusky Rose 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.
