The Seraphinite

The Seraphinite, she is an absolutely stunning late 60s green velvet prairie dream by coveted designer of the time Samuel Sherman. Her sleeves and joke are made from a chiffon style fabric with cotton lace trims.

Seraphinite is a real green dream. She has a gorgeous classic prairie cut, with velvet body, nipped in waist, high neck and beautiful sheer chiffon sleeves. This beauty is the perfect Heirloom dress to fit lots of occasions and green velvet is always a rare colour to find.

This girl measures to approx a UK size 6/8.

Bust - 34"

Waist - 26"

Length -  55"

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

Seraphinite has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please have her dry cleaned or spot clean when needed. Velvet is a luxurious fabric, please always treat her kindly.  She is in good vintage condition, the only thing to note is her lace trims have a slight tinge of green, they were like this when I found her. I am unsure if this is the way they are supposed to be or not, regardless, this is really minor and barely noticeable.

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.
