The Meadowsweet

Meet Meadowsweet, a outstandingly beautiful handmade 70s prairie dream, who is a firm fave of mine from this years chapter of Pansy Romance. She has been beautifully crafted in a soft cotton blend and is lined. Her print is PURE MAGIC with a soft goldy brown base and a romantic wallpaper style baroque flora print with hints of pink and white. She has an amazing silhouette, with high neck, frilled yoke, lace features, voluminous sleeves and a full skirt with a matching tie for her waist. 

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

Bust - up to 35" 

Waist - 27"

Length -  59"

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

Meadowsweet 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.

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.
