The Ellis

The Ellis, she is a STUNNING and extremely special rare dream dress by very special label Simon Ellis. She is a cotton blend girl and is lined.

Ellis is a true autumnal dream and a firm fave here at Pansy. She has the most amazing cut, with shirred waist with pearl button detailing, shirred shoulders, a deep V cut neck and puff sleeves with frill cuffs. She also has the most stunning colour and print, with polkadot base and floral features. We LOVE this beauty here at Pansy, she is truly a dress for a lifetime.

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8,

Bust - up to 36"

Waist - up to 27" - stretchy around the ribcage and underbust but fixed where she meets the skirt.

Length -  59"

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

The Ellis has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. She is in good vintage condition with 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.
