The Morticia Dress, she is a super rare 1970s gothic chuffon prairie maxi dress by Pansy fave Richard Shops. She is fully lined.
The Morticia Dress has the most gothic cut ever, with high pie crust neck, huge blouson sleeves, empire line with ribbon detail and a small flounce to her hem. She also has the most stunning white lace features. This beauty is the epitome of Pansy Heirloom.
This girl measures to a UK size 6/8 possibly a small 10.
Bust - 32" - the arm hole is very low cut, this adds more room into the bust and better flexibility.
Empire Waist - 28"
Length - 54"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6 and our model, the gorgeous Jensen is a UK 8/10 and 5"3 in height. This dress fitted Jensen but was a little snug.
The Morticia Dress has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Hand wash in cool water and drip dry. She is in good vintage condition, she has some very minor signs of wear including an almost invisible mark to the white lace on one of her sleeves (so faint my camera couldn't catch it).
She has minimal signs of vintage wear. But please bare in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all 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.
