The Esmerelda

The Esmerelda, she is a beautiful witchy green dream by Kati at Laura Phillips. She is made from a cotton blend and is lined.

Esmerelda is absolutely stunning. She has the most gorgeous vampy cut with stunning voluminous sleeves, deep cuffs, frill features, velvet trims and lace panelling. She has a beautifully cut witchy waistline which is slightly pointed at the waist. This beauty is a true bewitching beauty indeed.

This girl measures to approx a UK size 10 possibly a small 12.

Bust - 36" - 37"

Waist - 29"

Length -  59"

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

Esmerelda has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed in a cold wash at home. She is in good vintage condition, the only thing to note is her lace has a faint greenish tinge to it, I found her like this and I am unsure if this is the way she is supposed to be or has had colour run at some point. Regardless, she is stunning and this makes no difference at all.

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.
