The Liberty, she is a gorgeous and super rare mid-late 70s Origin midi dress made with Liberty London cotton fabric. She is not lined.
The Liberty, she is a true beauty. Origin were a brand who created most of their designs using Liberty fabrics. Not all Origin dresses bare the Liberty tag, just as this one does not, but we can assure you this is a quintessential Liberty Origin dress. She has the most amazing quilted bodice with button front, puff sleeves, piped seams and contrasting clashing Liberty prints. This dress is utterly gorgeous and truly a collectors piece.

The Liberty has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be hand washed at home in cool water. She is in goodvintage condition, two of her buttons on her cuffs are not original and have been replaced but this is really barely noticeable as they are very similar.
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.
