The Lupine

Meet Lupine, she is a stunning one of a kind handmade prairie beauty in a rich soft brushed cotton fabric. I love this dress, she is such a classic and beautiful 70s prairie, adorned in the best thick cotton lace with a stunning stripe floral print in soft blue tones with a touch of green. She has a gorgeous silhouette with high collar, nipped in waist and beautiful sleeves. Lupine is a true fave, she is just one stunning and amazing quality prairie, I know she will be loved in her next abode.

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8

Bust - up to 36"

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

The Lupine 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, a few faint marks to her lace, these are barely noticeable and a couple of other minor signs of wear. 

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.
