The Python

Meet Python, she is an incredible and RARE stunning 1970s green mythical marvel crafted in the most stunning shimmering green velvet. She has an incredible silhouette with juliet sleeves, fitted bodice and full length skirt and she is adorned in beautiful frilly lace detailing. When worn, I know this dress will look beyond incredible. She is a one of a kind precious piece, and I can't wait to see where she is heading..

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10 could work on a 6

Bust - up to 36"

Waist - 32"  does sit high

Length - 58"

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

The Python 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. Has a small patch of darned holes on one sleeve head, these are minor and barely noticeable, this has been reflected in her price. See last photo.

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.
