The Flax

Meet Flax, the DREAMIEST rare 70s cotton prairie by Richard Shops, in dark navy and white palette.. I LOVE this one, and when worn she looks even more beautiful, the mix of those stripes and florals is to die for, she is just so wearable and filled with free spirited charm. She has a beautiful silhouette with cropped voluminous sleeves, scoop neckline with fitted bodice, nipped in waist and super full tiered skirt with flounce. Honestly, this is a beautiful dress, I just know she will be a very loved treasure in her next abode.

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8

Bust - up to 34" - 35"

Waist -26"- 27"

Length - 56.5"

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

The Flax 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.
