The Esme

The Esme, she is a super beautiful romantic gauzy cotton blend prairie dream. Her skirt is lined but her bodice is not. 

The Esme, she really is a romantic dream. She has a stunning silhouette with huge ruffle neckline which can be worn on or off the shoulder, huge puff sleeves, lacy trims, a flounce to her hem and the most stunning wallpaper stripe chintzy floral print. We LOVE this beauty here at Pansy...

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10.

Bust - up to 38" (flexible due to her cut).

Waist - 28"

Length -  63" - please note this measurement was taken while Esme was hung on a clothes hanger. With her neckline being elasticated this is probably a few inches longer than it would be on the body. 

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

The Esme 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, she does have some minor signs of wear here and there, mostly at her seams, but she is still in good, strong wearable condition. 

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.
