The Le Noir

The Le Noir, she is a stunning wool blend gothic black prairie 70s beauty. Her fabric is soft and hangs beautifully. She is not lined.

Le Noir is the perfect black prairie. It is so rare I find a classic prairie in black, they are so rare. This beauty is a perfectly bewitching dream with crochet lace features, a high neck and long straight sleeves. She truly is something special and would make the best addition to a prairie lovers wardrobe. 

This girl measures to a UK size 10/12 but would also look great on a UK 8 with a looser fit. 

Bust - up to 38"

Waist - up to 32"

Length -  53"

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

Le Noir has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be hand washed in cool water at home and spun in the washer. She is in good vintage condition.

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.
