The Green Leaf

Meet Green Leaf.. she is an absolutely stunning HOLY GRAIL rare 1970s prairie dream by British Boutique label of the time Earlybird. This beauty is the most coveted Earlybird dress among collectors. Adorning huge billowing sleeves, a stunning square neckline and contrasting fresh green prints. 

This beauty is the dress of a lifetime, and truly a painful sale. She is the epitome of 70s British bohemian style and truly an investment piece. Crafted beautifully in a soft cotton lawn.


This girl measures to approx UK size 8, could possibly work on a UK 6 too.

Bust - 33"-34" max

Waist - 28"- 29" - does sit quite high and has a side tie belt attached.

Length -  58"

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

Green Leaf has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be handwashed at home in cold water. She is in good vintage condition.

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.
