The Snapdragon

The Snapdragon, she is a stunning rare 70s cotton prairie dream, I'm pretty sure this beauty is a Dollyrockers dress but her labels have been removed. She is not lined.

The Snapdragon, she is a real beauty. She has the most stunning vibrant print body, broderie yolke and sleeves, pie crust neck and faux button detail to her front. She is just so super gorgeous and such an amazing example of a prairie.

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8.

Bust - 34"

Waist - 26"

Length -  51"

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

The Snapdragon 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. She has a tiny pin prick sized mark to the side of her collar. This is very minor and hidden well under the ruffle. See last photo for more.

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.
