The Firethorn

The Firethorn, she is an absolutely stunning handmade rustic orange handmade prairie dream. She is made from a cotton blend fabric and is not lined.

Firethorn is a rustic autumnal dream. She has the most amazing print, bright colourway, tie feature to her chest, puff sleeves and lacy trims. She has a unique and statement silhouette with a princess waistline, super full skirt and queen anne neckline. We love this beauty here at Pansy.

This girl measures to approx UK size 12.

Bust - 38"

Waist - 30"

Length -  62"

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

Firethorn 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 has some minor signs of wear, including a couple of weak spots to her fabric at her back which have been secured and backed onto interfacing. These are barely noticeable and do not detract. This has been heavily reflected in her price. See last two photos for a photo of the flaw and the interfacing on the inside.

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.
