The Primrose Crochet Set, she is a stunning super super RARE pink hand crochet dress and cape set. No composition label but pretty sure she is made from wool. Her dress skirt is lined.
The Primrose Crochet Set, she is a pink dream. Her dress has the most stunning cut, with low cut neckline, voluminous flutter sleeves and a contrasting crochet weave to her skirt with scallop edging. Her matching cape has pom pom ties and a drawstring high neck.
Original crochet pieces are very very rare, this beauty is particularly special is the fact she has two pieces. I am lead believe this beauty was part of a bridal set from the mid 1970s.
This girl is quite flexible in size due to having some stretch. We best recommend her for UK sizes 6/8/10.
Bust - up to 34" - 36"
Waist - up to 30"
Length - 58"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Primrose Crochet Set has been hand washed in cool water and is ready to wear. Please do not put this beauty in the washing machine. Either hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry or have her dry cleaned. You can also spot clean too. She is in good vintage condition with minimal signs of expected vintage wear, the only thing to note is she has a small faint mark on her cape, really hard to notice. 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.
