The Fleur

Meet Fleur, she is a beautiful and rare 1970s handmade cotton prairie beauty. I adore this dress, I love her delicate festive winter floral in those gorgeous colours, styled the right way, she will be the perfect winter festive prairie dress. She has an epic silhouette with high frill collar, full skirt with nipped in waist, beautiful long straight sleeves which are slightly flared and she fastens with buttons down her front. I have had Fleur in my collection for many years, waiting for the perfect edit, and I absolutely believe this is it! i hope she finds a lovely home and I can't wait to see how gorgeous she looks.

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8 possibly 10

Bust - up to 36"

Waist - 28"

Length -  58.5"

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

The Fleur 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, including a tiny mend to one sleeve. 

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.
