The Mumbai 70s Skirt

Mumbai is the most amazing and rare beautiful cotton midi skirt by Monsoon. She dates from the mid-late 70s and is made in India. Like all early Monsoon pieces, Mumbai is BEAUTIFULLY crafted, made with a stunning quality cotton and has the most gorgeous chunky detailed hand embroidery around her hem. She also has little mirror placements which really are so beautiful. She has a super full sweep and a deep waistband. Her colours are rich and vibrant, it almost seems like she has barely been worn. This is most certainly up there with my favourite skirts ever, and she really does give off that free spirited vibe of the 70s.

This girl measures to approx UK size 10.

 Waist- 29"

Length - 34"

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

Mumbai has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home. She is in good condition with a few minor signs of wear, including a couple of really faint unnoticeable marks. 

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.
