Meet Moonlight, she is a stunning 1970s teal blue velvet dream dress by Michael Sinclair. This beauty is just simply gorgeous, she has a beautiful shape with square neckline, shirred bust panel, beautiful shaped sleeves with shirred cuffs and a long beautifully draped skirt. Her colour is divine and her gorgeous velvet shimmers so bright. Moonlight is an absolute fave from this years Heirlooms collection, and I just know she will be well loved in her next abode.
This girl would work on UK sizes 8/10/12 best. The measurements below may even stretch a little further when worn due to the smocking.
Bust - up to 40"
Empire Waist - up to 36"
Length - 57.5"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Moonlight has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Handwash and drip dry. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear.
ALL vintage velvet comes with small signs of wear to the pile of the fabric. This is part of the charm.
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.
