The Mabel

Meet Mabel, she is an absolutely gorgeous handmade cotton prairie delight, in the most gorgeous floral print one could find. This beauty is incredible, she has a gorgeous cut, with open neckline, gorgeously shaped sleeves with frill cuff, a nipped in waist with tie back belt and a full length sweeping skirt. This beauty is truly one of them handmade prairies which will hold a firm place in my heart, I can't wait to see where she is headed.

This girl would work on UK sizes 12/14 best.

Bust - 42"

Waist - 33" - 34" - can be drawn in to fit a smaller size with her waist ties.

Length -  59.5"

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

The Mabel 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, including a small mark on the back of her skirt near her hem. This is very unnoticeable and does not detract.

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.
