The Ophelia

Oh, Beautiful Ophelia, a pearly beautiful dream... This romantic beauty does absolutely have my heart. She has the most stunning oversized collar and frill cuffs adorned in beautiful chunky cotton lace. Her fabric is a beautiful jacquard style cotton, with delicate trellis weave. This beauty could work as a bridal dress or could be worn for self romancing on any occasion. 

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 small 10 best as she is quite slim on the arms. 

Bust - up to 38" 

Waist - up to 32" does have side ties to adjust fit

Length -  58"

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

Ophelia 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, the only thing to note is it looks as if she has been let down at her hem at some point, leaving a slight fold line. This is barely noticeable. 

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.
