The Linden

Meet Linden, she is an amazing and super rare 1970s cotton prairie sundress by coveted label Lucie Linden. This beauty is gorgeous, and she is a true vintage rarity indeed.. She has an epic velvet bodice with brocade style trims and straps, a beautiful shaped waistband with side ties to cinch the waist and a gorgeous rustic colourway. She has an autumnal floral base around her bodice and sides with a patchwork style panel through her skirt. Beauties like Linden are rare, and are those iconic pieces of vintage which can never be replicated. Wear her as a sundress in summer and layer over a blouse as we head into Autumn, the styling possibilities are endless!

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.
