The Regent

Meet Regent, she is a beautiful thick blue plush velvet 1960s handmade dream dress, and trust me, she is divine. Regent is truly a very very stunning dress and is crafted beautifully. Her velvet is a rich shimmering blue which is just amazing quality and she has stunning cream lace frills. She has a gorgeous silhouette with a slash neckline, empire waist, stunning puff sleeves and a long skirt which hangs beautifully. Regent is a true dream dress, I don't think my photos do her any justice at all. Trust me, when you get this dress, you will treasure her forever..

This girl would work on UK sizes 8/10 best. Could also possibly work on a UK 6.

Bust - up to 34"

Empire Waist - 29"

Length -  56"

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

The Regent has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Dry Clean Only. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear.

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.
