The Honeysuckle

The Honeysuckle, she is a stunning 80s handmade cotton blend lemon princess prairie dream. She is not lined.

The Honeysuckle, she is a pretty girl. She has a stunning princess silhouette with huge structured puff sleeves, structured bodice, super full skirt and cotton lace trims around her collar and skirt. 

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10.

Bust - 34"

Waist - 26" - can pull to 28"

Length -  54"

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

The Honeysuckle 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, this girl has been made by hand and has some spots of amateur sewing. She is fully wearable and still gorgeous but there are some signs of this in places. It looks like she has had something removed from alongside her zipper at some point. She also has some faint age related spots at her hem. All of these things have been reflected in her price. She is a beautiful piece and we really hope to see her find her forever home.

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.
