Meet Millicent, she is a stunning and rare 1970s cotton or cotton blend gothic dream dress by Richard Shops, she is lined. Millicent has the most stunning silhouette, with pie crust collar, a nipped in waist and black cropped sleeves. She has frills around her yoke and the most gorgeous floral frames print. Millicent is a personal fave of mine, you just rarely see such amazing prints like this, I just know she will look phenomenal when worn!
This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 possibly small 10 best.
Bust - up to 34"

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