Say Hello to Paloma, she is a beautiful and gorgeous 1970s cotton voile prairie delight, she is lined. This beauty is a soft romantic summers dream... she has the most gorgeous cut, with ruffle neckline, a nipped in waist with attached belt feature and a full length skirt with frill edge at her hem. She has a gorgeous scattered floral print to her body and a garden scene style print to her hem. Paloma is beautiful and so unique, she could be dressed up or down beautifully and will be a go-to summers occasion dress in your wardrobe...

This girl would work on UK sizes 10/12 best.

Bust - 36"-  37"

Waist - 28"

Length -  61"

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

The Paloma 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.
