The Elderberry

Meet Elderberry, she is a beautiful and truly rare 1970s cotton prairie beauty by Simon Ellis, she is also lined. Elderberry has an EPIC silhouette with truly stunning sleeves and an amazing cinched waist with velvet corset style waistband. Her print is mesmerising with beautiful floral dark pink and black striped swirls. Elderberry is absolutely a personal favourite of mine, and I was going to stash her a little longer, but she would just look so epic over Christmas and beyond! I hope she heads to a wonderful home. 

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8

Bust - up to 34"

Waist - 26"

Length -  55"

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

The Elderberry 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.
