Lavender is the most amazing and epic RARE 1970s trouser suit. Suits like this baby rarely ever come up. She has a safari style belted short sleeve jacket with dagger collar and flared trousers. She is made from a soft twill feel woven manmade fibre which feels soft and comfortable to wear. I cannot wait to see where this beauty ends up, she came to me with a collection of trouser suits from one super stylish lady and I feel truly so honoured to be sharing them with you.

Lavender has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home. She is in good condition with a few minor signs of wear, including a couple of really faint unnoticeable marks.
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.
