The Fratini

Meet Fratini, the clue is in the name with this one, she is a stunning and holy grail rare late 60s early 70s cotton prairie dream by my favourite designer of the time, Gina Fratini. This beauty is an absolute treasure and truly one of the rarest and most special dresses I have sourced to date and is a fantastic example of Gina's early work. She is adorned in the sweetest of lace trims with the most beautiful scattered floral print on a beautiful dark green base. She has a truly romantic silhouette, with stunning puff sleeves, a high collar, a nipped in waist and a super full skirt with a double ruffle flounce. This dress is honestly a beauty, and is one of those Heirloom forever dresses I will always be yearning to find once again.. I hope she heads to the best home today!

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8/10.

Bust - up to 36"

Waist - 27" - 28"

Length -  58"

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

The Fratini has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Dry clean only. 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.
