For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6. This dress was pulled in to fit with her tie back belt.

The Oat has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed on a 30 degree setting at home. She is in good vintage condition, the only thing to note is her elastic shirring has worn in her sleeves, she is still beautiful nevertheless.

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.

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.
