The Feathers

The Feathers, she is a stunning super rare 1970s Liberty midi length prairie dream dress by super rare and coveted label Fine Feathers Henley in Arden.

Feathers is an absolute dream of a dress and really is a rarity indeed. Out of all Vintage Liberty dresses, Fine Feathers are absolutely the rarest. This beauty has the most stunning silhouette with huge voluminous sleeves, a mandarin style collar and beautiful crosshatch sewn panels on her bodice front and back and cuffs. She has beautiful contrasting ribbon trims and beautiful fabric coloured buttons. 

This beauty is a really special dress, truly a one off find, and I cannot wait to see where she carries on her life..

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10 small 12.

Bust - 36" 

Waist - 32"

Length - 45"

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

Feathers has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, the only thing to note is one of the caps from a button on her cuff is missing. This is very minor but has been reflected in her price. See last photo.

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.
