The Rouge

Meet Rouge, she is an absolutely beautiful and truly special 1970s cotton prairie dream dress in a gorgeous vibrant red shade. Rouge is identical to a Laura Ashley dress of the same period, leading me to believe this beauty has been created using a Laura Ashley pattern. She has a truly stunning silhouette with huge sweeping skirt with flounce, square neckline, nipped in waist and the sweetest cropped layered sleeves. She has a tie feature at her waist and pintuck details at her neckline, she has been beautifully crafted and will truly look so gorgeous when worn. I cannot wait to see where Rouge is headed today!

This girl measures to approx UK size 8, could also work on a bustier 6.

Bust - 34"

Waist - 26"

Length -  56"

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

The Rouge has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear. 

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.
