The Frances

Meet Frances, she is a beautiful handmade 1970s cotton prairie pinafore dress. Frances is such a sweetie, she has gorgeous textured pink floral cotton fabric and stunning frill detailing. She is perfect for layering and will look so gorgeous with sandals come spring or paired with a knit during the colder months. She has a low cut back and attached side ties to her waist. 


This girl measures to approx UK size 4/6, she has a petite fit. 

Bust - up to 34"

Empire Waist - 29"

Length -  52"

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

The Frances 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, she has some novice sewing in places but nothing major to note. 

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.
