Medallion is absolutely stunning, and the most perfect velvet pinafore dress you ever did see.. with a super full skirt, thick straps and a beautiful fitted empire line bodice, this beauty is absolutely gorgeous. She is paired here with a gold blouse (not included) but would look amazing layered with both blouses and fitted long sleeve tops for a more casual look too...
This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8.
Bust - 33"
Empire Waist - 28"
Length - 55.5"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
Medallion has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please hand wash only. She is in good vintage condition, she does have marks to her skirt, this is extremely common with vintage velvet, but they really aren't too noticeable and do not detract, this has been dramatically reflected in her price.
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.
