The Fanciful

The Fanciful, she is an absolutely gorgeous rare 1960s velvet and lace dream dress.

Fanciful is as fancy as could be. She has the most stunning lace bodice with ruffle neckline and sheer lace sleeves, velvet skirt and ribbon sash belt. This beauty would look a total dream paired with shimmering gold shoes this party season!

This girl measures to approx UK size 10/12

Bust - 37"

Waist - 31" 

Length -  38.5"

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

Fanciful has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please dry clean or spot clean only. She is in good vintage condition.

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.
