The Edwina

Meet Edwina, she is an absolutely gorgeous 1970s off white cotton romantic dream dress, she is handmade and I believe she has been crafted from a Laura Ashley pattern. Edwina is truly beautiful, she has a gorgeous edwardian style silhouette, with high collar, gorgeous sleeves and a full skirt. She is adorned in the most lovely details with delicate lace trims, pintucking and a matching sash waist belt. She has a slight polkadot texture to her cotton and overall is a very lovely dress. 

This girl measures to approx UK size 10/12.

Bust - up to 36"

Waist - 30"

Length -  56"

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

The Edwina 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, she has some small faint marks to her skirt, but these are very minor and do not detract.

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.
