The Mabel

Meet Mabel, she is a beautiful and truly rare 1970s dream dress by collectible label Fine Feathers, she is gorgeously crafted in Liberty cotton. Mabel is the perfect shorter length addition to Pansy Romance, she has stunning sleeves, beautiful bodice button detailing and gorgeous contrasting panelled features. She has an amazing silhouette with open neckline, cinched in waist and a flattering cut. Fine Feathers dresses are VERY rare and collectible, and are always a firm fave among vintage collectors, I have never had a shorter length version like this one, and I cannot wait to see where she is headed today! 

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8/10 best.

Bust - up to 35"

Waist - 28" - can be cinched with side ties. 

Length -  39"

 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.

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.
