The Fine Feathers

Say Hello to Fine Feathers, the clue is in the name with this one... She is a HOLY GRAIL super rare 1970s dream by coveted label of the time Fine Feathers Henley In Arden. She is beautifully handcrafted in Liberty floral fabric, which feels like either a brushed cotton or cotton/wool blend viyella style fabric, it is of course of supreme quality and beautifully soft.

This dream is absolutely something special and a true collectors piece. She is the rarest Fine Feathers dress I have sourced, and possibly even seen. She has an unbelievable silhouette, with smock style cut with tiered skirt, which can be drawn right in with her drawstring waist ties and huge statement beautiful billowing sleeves. She has an epic and icon 70s dagger collar, with fabric covered buttons fastening, and beautiful contrasting blue panels. 

This beauty is RARE and deserves the BEST home. She was sourced so close to home too, thanks to a lovely follower for telling me she was hanging out in the wild, clearly waiting for me! I cannot wait to see where she is headed.

This girl is quite flexible in size due to her cut, and also quite hard to measure. We estimate she would work best from a UK size 6 to a 12 well.

Bust - up to 38" approx - hard to get the exact measurement due to her low cut sleeves.

Waist - up to 40" untied, can be drawn right in to suit all frames.

Length -  46"

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

The Fine 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, she has a few minor signs of wear. 

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.
