The Jaipur

Meet Jaipur, she is a super amazing HOLY GRAIL RARE 1970s dream dress by Samuel Sherman, for this 'Clothes' label. This beauty is OUTSTANDING and truly the most precious red dress I have sourced to date. She is bright and beautiful with an Indian inspired print and a stunning silhouette with puff sleeves, square neckline and a super full swooshing tiered skirt. When worn the silhouette of this beauty is literally outstanding and she is PERFECT for hot summery days. I cannot wait to see where this rare treasure is headed.

This girl measures to approx UK size 6 small 8 best.

Bust - 34"

Empire Waist - 29"

Length -  57"

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

The Jaipur has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear, she had a weak spot to the back of her skirt which I have secured with interfacing, this is not noticeable at all and does not detract.

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.
