The Poison Ivy

Meet Poison Ivy, she is an absolutely stunning and RARE 1970s green velvet dream dress, which is very possibly one of a kind. This is a true firm fave from Heirlooms, and a true precious treasure to behold, with that stunning oversized frilly dream collar, beautiful lace detailing and that shimmering luxe green velvet whats not to love.. She is mythical, witchy and truly stunning, and is absolutely one of my best velvet dream dresses sourced to date, I just know she is going to be adored in the next chapter of her life..

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8 small 10

Bust - up to 35"

Waist - 28"- 29"  - does sit high

Length - 55.5"

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

The Poison Ivy has been freshly cleaned and is ready to wear. DRY CLEAN ONLY. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear.

ALL vintage velvet comes with small signs of wear to the pile of the fabric. This is part of the charm.

 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.
