The Rye

The Rye, she is a stunning 1970s cotton prairie beauty in a gorgeous dark maroon shade. She is not lined.

The Rye, she is the perfect dress for layering. She has the most stunning print, ruffle details, flounce hem and tie back. Her styling opportunities are endless!

Please note the white blouse is NOT included.

This girl measures to a UK 10 small 12 but worked lovely on our in house mannequin Norma, tied in with her back belt who measures to a UK 6. Could work on a UK 6-10/12 nicely

Bust - 36" - 37"

Waist - 32"

Length -  56"

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

The Rye has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed on a 30 degree setting at home. She is in good vintage condition.

She has minimal signs of vintage wear. But please bare in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all 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.
