Meet Jacobs Smock, she is a beautiful and insanely rare early 80s Laura Ashley cotton midaxi length velvet smock dress. Honestly, this beauty is divine, it is really rare to find velvet smocks like this! She has a gorgeous lace collar, mutton sleeves and a gorgeous hand smocked bodice with velvet covered buttons. She has a billowing silhouette which is comfortable and easy to wear. I cannot wait to see where Jacobs Smock is headed, she is a true Heirloom indeed..
This girl is pretty free fitting depending on preference. Would work on UK sizes 10/12/14 nicely.
Bust - up to 42"
Waist - FREE
Length - 50"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Jacobs Smock has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Dry Clean Only. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear, most notably a few small marks to her collar and also a sewn up mend next to her cuff opening, this is very minor and unnoticeable, it was impossible to photograph this due to the velvet. This has been reflected in her price.
ALL vintage velvet comes with small signs of wear to the pile of the fabric. This is part of the charm.
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.
