Meet Goldie, she is a gorgeous 70s handmade greeny gold velvet dress with embossed floral print. She has a gorgeous shape with billowing sleeves and a round neckline. She is perfect for dressing up or down and truly is a very unique beauty.. I hope she finds a lovely home!
This girl would work on UK sizes 8/10/12 depending on desired fit.
Bust - up to 36"
Empire Waist - 32"
Length - 52.5"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Goldie has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Hand wash only. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear, and like all vintage velvet she has spots of wear to her pile. She has panels of shirring at her waist and sleeves which have lost their stretch, personally this doesn't bother me and she still looks gorgeous as is. 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.
