The Magnolia

The Magnolia, she is the belle of the ball. She is an embroidered early 80s soft lemon cotton girl and is lined.

The Magnolia, she is a real stunner. She has the most gorgeous milkmaid silhouette with huge puff sleeves with ribbon bow feature, square neckline with fitted bodice, full skirt and the most gorgeous weighty cotton fabric with  embroidered soft coloured detailing. This dress is quite simply gorgeous, she is so timeless and really is a dress for a lifetime.

This girl measures to approx UK size 10, small waisted 12.

Bust - 36" max

Waist - 28"

Length -  56.5"

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

The Magnolia 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.

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.
