The Gardener's Hands

The Gardener's Hands, she is a gorgeous rare novelty print maxi prairie beauty. She is a lightweight cotton blend girl and she is not lined.

The Gardener's Hands, we love this girl here at Pansy. She has the best print ever, with an illustrative hand, flowers and butterflies. She has puff sleeves, high neck and a ruffle yoke feature. She is the cutest classic Pansy prairie...

This girl measures to approx UK size 12.

Bust - 38"

Empire Waist - 33" - 34"

Length -  56.5"

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

The Gardener's Hands  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 does have some age related spotting marks, they are scattered over the lower end of the back of her skirt. In a forgiving place and do not detract. This has been reflected in her price.

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.
