The Joni

Meet Joni, she is an AMAZING and collectible late 60s early 70s cotton bohemian dream dress by Chelsea Girl. I absolutely adore this one, in that dark deep indigo shade with those gorgeous mixed prints, she is an absolute bohemian gem. She has  a beautiful and very wearable silhouette with flutter sleeves, shirred bodice and full panelled skirt with waist ties to cinch. Pair with sandals for the ultimate summer bohemian vibe..

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8 small 10

Bust - 33" - does have some stretch due to the smocking, I think when worn this will easily go to 34" or possibly more.

Waist - 27" - 30" due to stretch, has waist ties to cinch. 

Length - 53"

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

The Joni 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. 

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.
