The Morticia

The Morticia, she is an absolutely stunning late 60s black gothic velvet dream by Shelena. 

Morticia really is a gothic lady. She has a stunning cream cotton lace yoke and also cream cotton lace sleeves, a nipped in waist and her velvet is stunning and has gorgeous drape. This beauty is a classic gothic prairie and we love her so much here at Pansy.

This girl measures to approx a UK size 6, would also look amazing on a UK size 4 too.

Bust - 33"

Waist - 26"

Length -  54"

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

Morticia has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please have her dry cleaned or spot clean when needed. Velvet is a luxurious fabric, please always treat her kindly.  She is in good vintage condition, she has some marks to her lining but these really are very minor. 

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.
