The Orchard

Meet Orchard, she is an absolutely stunning and truly precious 70s John Charles dream dress, she is made from a flowy delicate chiffon and is lined. Orchard has a beautiful and unusual silhouette, with gorgeous shaped drapey sleeves with dramatic frill cuffs, ruched bodice, nipped in waist with peplum overlay and a gorgeous flowing skirt. I LOVE the print on this dream, she has an amazing floral print in lilac and green on a soft creamy peachy base. Honestly Orchard is spectacular and a true dream, she will be well treasured in her next abode.

This girl measures to approx UK size 10/12

Bust - up to 36"

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

The Orchard 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.

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.
