The Emelias Cabinet

Meet Emelias Cabinet, she is an incredible and super rare late 1960s gothic black plush velvet dream dress by Polly Peck. This beauty is divine. She has the most stunning large gothic frog closures, a nipped in waist and cream satin frills around her collar and cuffs. Emelias Cabinet really is the epitome of Pansy Heirlooms, she is filed late 60s gothic opulence and victoriana influences. I know this beauty will be well cherished in her next home, she is a true Heirloom indeed.. Team with black boots for the ultimate gothic look this season!


This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 best.

Bust - up to 35"

Waist - 26"

Length -  53.5"

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

The Emelias Cabinet has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Dry Clean Only. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear, most notably some slight discolouration and other small signs of wear on her satin frills.

ALL vintage velvet comes with small signs of wear to the pile of the fabric. This is part of the charm.

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.
