The Sea Siren

The Sea Siren, she is a Holy Grail 1970s prairie dream by Gunne Sax. She is made from a cotton blend gauze. Her skirt is lined. 

The Sea Siren, she really is a Siren of the Seven Seas... She is a super coveted Gunne Sax dream. She has the most amazing silhouette, with maiden like bust,  corseted waist, statement billowing sleeves, lace trims and a stunning dark floral print. This beauty is extremely special, as most of you will know, Gunne Sax beauties are highly collectible and rare ones like this even more so.


This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8 - very possibly could work on a small waisted UK 10 as her cup area is elasticated and has room.

Bust - 32" Flat, but her cup area is elasticated. There is maybe another 2"-4" of room in the cups. 

Waist - 26" - corset could possibly be loosened to allow for a little more room.

Length -  60"

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

The Sea Siren 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, all Gunne dresses have signs of wear, it seems to be something about the way they were made. This beauty has minimal signs of wear but is mostly in very good vintage condition. No major flaws to note.

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.
