The Pimpernel

Meet Pimpernel, she is an absolutely stunning quality cotton rare prairie summers dream by Richard Shops. This beauty is simply gorgeous and truly is so unique. She has a beautiful print combination, which is very arts and crafts, in a beautiful rich blue shade with gorgeous white trimmings and fabric covered buttons at her yoke. She has a very wearable and versatile sleeveless silhouette with scoop neck and peplum style feature at her waist. This beauty truly is gorgeous and really is a very special dress, it is so rare we get beauties of this style here at Pansy. I cannot wait to see where she is headed. 

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10.

Bust - 36"

Waist - 27"

Length -  56.5"

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

The Pimpernel 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. 

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.
