The Isabel

The Isabel, she is a stunning 70s Liberty prairie cotton prairie dress in a midaxi length. She is not lined.

The Isabel, she is a true Liberty gem. She has the most amazing structured silhouette in the most stunning quality Liberty cotton. She has mutton sleeves with deep button cuffs, pie crust neck and button detailing down her bodice front. We love this girl here at Pansy, she truly is a very rare special prairie indeed.

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10.

Bust - 37"

Waist - 28"

Length -  53"

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

The Isabel has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 20 degree setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a couple of marks to the back of her collar, these are really barely noticeable and in such a forgiving place. See last photo for more.

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.
