The Red Rose

The Red Rose, she is a stunning 1980s red cotton needle corduroy Laura Ashley midi dream.

Red Rose is a beauty. She has a subtle paisley print, classic Laura Ashley mutton style slightly puffed shoulders, a super full skirt and a spooky lace collar. She would also make such an amazing Christmas dress... dare I say it!

This girl measures to approx UK size 12

Bust - 38"

Waist - 31"

Length -  48"

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

The Red Rose 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, has a very faint mark on her collar. So faint my camera couldn't pick it up.

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.
