The Genevieve

Say Hello to Genevieve, she is the most amazing and beautiful rare cotton 70s prairie dream by Vivien Smith. This beauty is VERY special, early Vivien Smith of York designs rarely come up, and when they do, they are always iconic. This beauty is a sweet romantic dream, she has the best ever wallpaper stripe floral print, thick cotton lace trims, a beautiful cut with square neckline, empire line waist, voluminous sleeves and a tiered skirt. Genevieve is the epitome of true prairie romance, and is absolutely one of my favourite dresses I have ever sourced. I cannot wait to see where she is headed. 

This girl would work on UK sizes 8/10 possibly small 12 best.

Bust - 37"

Empire Waist - 29" - 30"

Length -  57"

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

The Genevieve 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, 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.
