The Sapphire

The Sapphire, she is an absolutely AMAZING super rare sultry blue late 60s early 70s handmade luxurious velvet dream. No composition labels but her velvet is so soft, I suspect it may be a silk or silk blend.

Sapphire is extraordinary, she is a true rare gem indeed. She has stunning juliet sleeves, a high neck and white trims. Her velvet is so soft and totally gorgeous and drapes beautifully. Her colour is a glistening vibrant blue. She is absolutely a forever dress and something truly special to keep for a lifetime. Velvet beauties like Sapphire are truly very very rare and we know you will not see a beauty like this one again...

This girl measures to approx a UK size 12.

Bust - 38"

Empire Waist - 31"

Length -  58.5"

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

Sapphire has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please have her dry cleaned or spot clean if she gets particular marks. Velvet is a luxurious fabric, please always treat her kindly.  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.
