The Flaxen

Meet Flaxen, she is a BEAUTIFUL and totally groovy 1960s dress in the best floral print! She is made in a Courtelle fabric, which feels and looks like a cotton. I love love love this funky beaut, she isn't my usual shape of dress, but she is just too good I had to get her for you! She has a pussybow tie at her neck, POCKETS, beautiful shaped sleeves and a working button closure down her front. Those colours are EVERYTHING! Imagine how cool she will look with boots, it will be the ultimate autumn vibe!

This girl would work on UK sizes 12/14 possibly 16 best. I do think she would look great loose fitting too.

Bust - up to 43"

Waist - up to 36"

Length -  40"

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

The Flaxen 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. Her buttons on her cuffs look like they have been replaced.

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.
