The Phlox

Meet Phlox, she is a gorgeous and super rare late 60s early 70s cotton prairie dream dress by iconic and coveted designer of the time Samuel Sherman. This beauty is divine and is one of those rare dream dresses that is absolutely so precious and yet still so wearable. Phlox has a gorgeous delicate stripe floral print which I love so much and a gorgeous silhouette with flutter sleeves, a high waist and a square neckline. She is also adorned in the most gorgeous cotton lace trims. Phlox is a real rare treasure to behold and I cannot wait to see where she is headed today. 

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10.

Bust - 36"

Waist - 28" 

Length -  53"

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

The Phlox 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, she has been neatly taken up, her previous owner has folded in some of the fabric above the flounce in her skirt, meaning she can be safely put back to her usual length without damaging her material. 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.
