The Seashell

Meet Seashell, she is a beautiful and super rare 1970s natural raw calico cotton prairie dream dress by John Marks. This beauty is divine and is an absolute bohemian treasure. She has an amazing silhouette with an open square neckline, huge billowing sleeves, a nipped in waist and a long flowing tiered skirt. She is adorned in the most wonderful cotton lace trim panels and has a button placket closure to her front. Beauties like Seashell truly are rare and don't come up often. I cannot wait to see where she is headed today..

This girl measures to approx UK size 6, could also work on a UK 4.

Bust - 33"

Waist - 25" - 26"

Length -  57.5"

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

The Seashell 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.
