The Ethel 1970s Victoriana Maxi Cloak

Ethel is an absolutely stunning 1970s Victoriana floor length maxi cloak with faux fur trims. She is a real statement piece and honestly a true one of a kind beauty. She closes with a button at her neckline and has several poppers down her front. 

 This girl is free size up to approx a UK size 16.

Length -  55"

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

Ethel has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please hand wash or spot clean when needed. She is in good vintage condition, she has some signs of wear which have been heavily reflected in her price, she has a slight patch of fading around one shoulder and two historic repairs at her left pocket. They have been sewn and it really is barely noticeable. Due to black velvet being notoriously hard to photograph, I couldn't get any close up shots of these, but they really aren't that noticeable, they don't affect wear and have been heavily reflected in her price. 

 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.
