The Melodie

The Melodie,  she is a stunning 70s lemon textured cotton blend prairie maxi beauty by Elknot. She is not lined.

The Melodie, she is a summers dream. She has the most stunning cut, with blousey style top, tiered skirt and ruffle features. She comes with her original belt and has buttons down her chest and a tie which can be worn open or closed. This beauty is such a timeless summery prairie dream, we love her so much.

This girl is quite flexible in size, she would work on UK sizes 8/10/12 nicely, possibly even a 14. Please see measurements below.

Bust - up to 40"

Waist - up to 32" - 34" (elasticated)

Length -  56"

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

The Melodie 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.
