The Painted Blooms

Hello Painted Blooms, my one true love. This insanely rare Liberty Print wool beauty by coveted York Based boutique Droopy and Browns is truly a spectacle indeed. She is one of those dresses that will never be found again, and is absolutely an investment piece. She has the most amazing dramatic silhouette, with statement sleeves, which are truly iconic to Droopy pieces. She has an unusual collar which could be worn high or folded over and a super full skirt with large patch pockets. Her print is just fantastic and such a classic Liberty piece.

I cannot wait to see where Painted Blooms lives out her next chapter.

This girl measures to approx UK size 10.

Bust - up to 34" approx, hard to measure due to the low cut armholes.

Waist - 28" - 29"

Length -  54"

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

Painted Blooms 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.
