The Lelia

Meet Leila, she is an absolutely gorgeous 1970s cotton beauty by one of my favourite boutique labels Quad, she is also lined. She has a beautiful classic silhouette, with an amazing high collar, straight sleeves, ruffle details and a nipped in waist. She has a soft delicate floral print in pink on a white base and has a white velvet ribbon sash along with pearl button detailing, she truly is a romantic dream indeed!

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10.

Bust - up to 36"

Waist - 28"

Length -  55.5"

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

The Leila 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 has a couple of small pulls near her hem and some wear to the velvet on her sash.

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.
