The Iris

The Iris, she is a stunning 70s lilac prairie maxi beauty in a lovely waffle style fabric, unsure of actual composition, may be a cotton blend or a manmade fibre. She is lined.

The Iris, she is a lilac dream. She has puff sleeves, a frilly yoke, pie crust neck with ribbon detail, a full skirt and a flounce to her hem. Her print is a dark violet berry style print. She is just so super cute!

This girl measures to a UK size 12, she has some give so could possibly fit a 14 too.

Bust - 38"

Waist - 32"

Length -  58"

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

The Iris 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, she has a few very 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.
