The Nancy

Meet Nancy, she is a gorgeous and rare 1970s white romantic dream dress, beautifully crafted in a gauzy cotton and she is lined. Nancy is very Gunne Sax, she could either be a handmade version OR she is an unlabelled Gunne, which do come up! She has a stunning queen anne neckline with pearl trim, corset feature and she is adorned in sweet ribbon trims. She has delicate lace sleeves and a beautiful silhouette with nipped in waist and a flounce to her hem. Nancy is a true beauty, and is one of those vintage dresses dripping in vintage charm. 

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8.

Bust - up to 35"

Waist - 26" - 27"

Length -  58.5"

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

The Nancy 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. She has a tiny sealed up nick to her skirt which is barely visible, and some slight faint marks to her hem.

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.
