The Pansy

Meet Pansy! She is an absolutely GORGE 1970s cotton blend prairie beauty by one of my favourite labels Monet London, she is lined! Pansy has the most beautiful scattered Pansy flower print with a scenic garden style print at her hem. She has beautiful velvet features around her waist, yoke and cuffs and a beautiful silhouette with pie crust frill collar, frill yoke, puff sleeves and a full skirt with a nipped in waist. Seriously Pansy is a real treasure, and a true sweetie indeed! I cannot wait to see where she is headed today!

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8.

Bust - 35"

Waist - 26"

Length -  56.5"

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

The Pansy 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, including a tiny sewn up mend near her zipper. I have forgotten to photograph this, but it is truly tiny and so minor! Please trust me that it really is nothing major!

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.
