The Petunia

The prettiest Petunia is a pretty girl indeed.. this 70s cotton blend prairie is SO CUTE! She has a brown base colour with floral style novelty print, broderie and ribbon trims and beautiful billowing sleeves. She is a really good example of a classic 70s prairie, we love pretty Petunia here at Pansy.

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 best.

Bust - up to 34" 

Waist - 26"

Length -  54"

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

Petunia 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, the only thing to note is there is a misprint in the fabric of her skirt, this is very common with vintage dresses and does not detract. See last photo for more.

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.
