Say Hello to Powder Blue... she is a gorgeous cotton blend broderie anglaise prairie beauty in a beautiful pastel blue shade. She has a beautiful white oversized double layered bertha collar and sweet little puff sleeves. She has a cut which is supposed to be blousey on top with an elasticated nipped in waist and swooping dramatic full length skirt. This beauty is really gorgeous and I cannot wait to see how you style her this summer.
This girl would work on UK sizes 12/14 best.
Bust - 40"
Waist - elasticated up to 34"
Length - 59" - but this will probably be a few inches shorter when she is sat on the waist properly.
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Powder Blue 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 marks near her hem.
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.
