The Garnet

Sweet Garnet is truly a rare pretty beauty indeed, in a classic 70s does 30s cut, with pretty collar detail, oversized buttons, and a sweet forget-me-not style floral print. Her colour palette is just beautiful, with a rich burgundy base and contrasting blue flowers. Pair with cute coloured tights, boots and a beret for a dear parisian look... She is made from a stunning cotton feel rayon fabric which is so beautiful and soft and is made by a great 70s label Jon Adam.

This girl would work on UK size 10/12, could possibly work on a UK 8 too.

Bust - 38" 

Waist - 29" - 30" has attached side ties to cinch for fit

Length -  42"

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 cool setting. She is in good vintage condition with some 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.
