The Maple

Meet Maple, she is a beautiful 1970s cotton prairie dream by one of the most coveted high street labels of the time, Chelsea Girl, which later became River Island. Maple is just so sweet, she has a beautiful maple leaf print in a soft burgundy shade on a cream base and gorgeous cotton lace detailing. She has a rounded neckline, a flowing skirt with flounce and sweet puff sleeves. Maple is a very classic and gorgeous prairie dress, she is also crafted beautifully and her cotton is of lovely quality, I just know she will be loved in her new home.

This girl measures to approx UK size 4/6.

Bust - 31" - 32"

Waist - 25"

Length -  54"

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

The Maple 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.
