The Edith

Meet Edith, she is a beautiful cotton or cotton blend rare late 60s early 70s floral gothic dream by Marion Donaldson, she is also lined. Edith is BEAUTIFUL and is the perfect gothic esque dress for those who also want a touch of feminine romance. She has a stunning silhouette with huge puff sleeves, a squared neckline and a nipped in waist. She is adorned in beautiful thick velvet ribbons around her waistline, which give a gorgeous shape, and also has velvet ribbon bows on her sleeves. She has a black base colour with a clustered scattered floral print in pinks and blues. Edith is a truly beautiful and sweet gothic girl, I know she will be well loved in her next abode.

This girl would work on UK sizes 10/12 best.

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

The Edith 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.
