Her black areas are made from a stunning crepe silk chiffon which is honestly gorgeous. This beauty is absolutely phenomenal and truly is a quality piece which will see you through many party seasons to come...

Sparkle Sparkle has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Dry Clean Only. Do not was at home or her silk will shrink and ruin. You can spot clean! She is in good vintage condition, some very minor signs of wear in places.
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.
