Meet Spindle, she is a beautiful one of a kind deep maroon velvet dream dress. Spindle is a true gothic wonder, she has a gorgeous lace yoke, high collar, mutton sleeves with puff shoulders and an empire waist with side ties to cinch and swooping skirt. Her fabric is a true dream and is thick, soft and plush, she will look truly divine styled for the winter and festive season, and will be a precious and reached for piece for many years to come..

This girl would work on UK sizes 10/12 best.

Bust - up to 37"

Empire Waist - 34" - can be cinched with side ties

Length -  54"

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

The Spindle has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Dry Clean Only. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear.

ALL vintage velvet comes with small signs of wear to the pile of the fabric. This is part of the charm.

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.
