The Richmond

The Richmond, she is a beautiful french made 1970s cotton prairie beauty.

Richmond is a real beauty, and although she is short sleeved, would look so great worn layered up in the Autumn Winter season. She has a stunning arts and crafts style full floral print in a beautiful colour way, a beautifully shaped bodice with piped details, handkerchief style sleeves and a handkerchief hemline. 

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8.

Bust - 34"

Waist - 26"

Length -  staggered length 60" at the longest point.

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

Richmond has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. 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.
