The Garnet

The Garnet, she is a stunning 1980s handmade midi length romantic beauty with a gothic twist. Her bodice is satin and her skirt feels like a wool blend.

Garnet is a romantic gothic princess dress with a stunning fuschia pink satin bodice, amazing puff sleeves with bow feature, a princess waistline and a super full skirt. She closes with a zip but has buttons down her back for decoration. I love this sweetie, she's the perfect girly girl Pansy Heirloom dress!

This girl measures to approx a UK size 6/8.

Bust - 34"

Waist - 26"

Length -  50"

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

Garnet 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 two spots of wear to the back of her bodice, very minor and unnoticeable, see last two photos for more.

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.
