The Periwinkle

Say Hello to Periwinkle, and isn't she just truly gorgeous! She has an amazing 1970s chintzy garden floral print, which is actually really rare and hard to find on prairies. She is made from a beautiful lightweight semi sheer cotton gauze and has gorgeous lilac ric rac trims. Her classic prairie silhouette is just to die for, with frill high neck collar, nipped in waist and voluminous sleeves with frill cuffs. This beauty is a dream and so wearable for years to come.

This girl would work on UK size 12 best.

Bust - up to 40" 

Waist - 30"

Length -  56"

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

Periwinkle 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.

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.
