The Polly

Meet Polly, she is a super unusual 1970s cotton prairie beauty. Polly has a super unique cut, with a ruffle neckline which follows all the way down her button front closure and sweet puff sleeves. She has a patch pocket and has beautiful contrasting blue colours and prints. She is so easy breezy and is perfect for throwing on with sandals for a hot summers day for a cool statement look!

This girl measures to approx UK size 10 small 12, could possibly work on an 8 oversized too.

Bust - 36"

Waist - 32" - is a loose shape at her waist.

Length -  52"

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

The Polly 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, including a couple of very faint small bleach style spots to the lower half of her skirt, 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.
