The Rue de Marseille

The Rue de Marseille, she is a stunning rustic autumnal rare dream prairie by Richard Shops. She is a cotton blend girl and is lined.

Rue de Marseille is a very special lady indeed. She has the most beautiful silhouette, with fully shirred bodice, frilly high neck, fluttery sleeves, a peplum feature and a flounce hem. This beauty has a gorgeous autumnal floral print, with browns, creams and a touch of orange. What I love the most about this beaut is her shirring, it really is so special and it makes her super flexible in size, super flattering and also super comfy to wear.

This girl is super flexible in size due to the elasication in her bodice and would work on UK sizes 8 to a 14 nicely.

Bust - can stretch all the way to 44" comfortably.

Waist - can stretch from 26" - 34" comfortably

Length -  57"

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

The Rue de Marseille 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.
