The Serpent

The Serpent, she is an absolutely AMAZING handmade  heavy blue luxurious velvet gothic dream. 

Serpent is so so so special, she has a full lace up corset chest, which is just so bewitchingly sexy, pointed slightly flared gothic sleeves, and an amazing super flattering silhouette with fitted bust and a flared skirt with side panels to add a super bewitching shape. We love this beauty so so much here at Pansy. She really is a witchy wondrous dream. 

This girl measures to approx a UK size 10/12. Could also possibly work on a UK 14 too depending on how you would like her fitted.


Bust - 38"

Waist - 30" - 31"

Length -  53"

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

Serpent has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please hand wash in cool water or have her dry cleaned. Velvet is a luxurious fabric, please always treat her kindly. She is in good vintage condition, the only thing to note is due to her being handmade, the sewing at her corset hooks isn't super tidy. Its very minor and barely noticeable but worth a mention.

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.
