The Picnic with Pansy

The Picnic with Pansy, she's a super super rare stunning handmade dream cotton prairie beauty, she is not lined.

The Picnic with Pansy, she is a total fave here at Pansy. She is just so unusual, she really is one of a kind. She has a pink gingham top, with huge mutton sleeves and cotton lace trims. Her skirt is the most amazing rainbow pastel cotton plaid fabric and she has a pocket. She fastens with buttons down her back and has a small zipper at the top of her skirt. This girl truly is a special piece, we have never had a gingham prairie this good. She is a dress for a lifetime.

This girl measures to approx UK size 10/12.

Bust - 38"

Waist - 32"

Length -  56"

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

The Picnic with Pansy has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a small black mark to one of her sleeves, this is very minor and unnoticeable. 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.
