The Magenta

The Magenta, she is a bright and beautiful 70s cotton blend prairie maxi dress, she is a St Michael's girl but her label has worn off. She is not lined.

The Magenta, she is so beautiful. She has a tropical style bright floral print, high neck, HUGE puff sleeves and button detailing down her neck. We quite simply love this girl here at Pansy...

This girl measures to approx UK size 12/14.

Bust - 40"

Waist - 33"

Length -  53"

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

 The Magenta has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. She is in good vintage condition, she does have some small signs of wear, especially at her seams, but she is still in good condition with plenty of life left in her yet.

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.
