The Frances Dress

The Frances Dress, she is a stunning 70s striped prairie dream, she is made from a lightweight manmade fibre and is fully lined.

The Frances Dress, she is just so cute. Her colours are a beautiful soft lilac, grey and pink palette. She has a large broderie anglaise frill neckline and frill to her skirt, puff sleeves pink ribbon trims and a pink ribbon belt. This dress is a total real life doll dress and perfect for those self romancing days we all need.

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8.

Bust - 32"

Waist - 26"

Length -  54"

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

The Frances Dress 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 a tiny patch of faint discolouration to the back of her neck on her frill collar. This is so faint my camera could not pick it up.

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.
