The Strawberry Thief

Meet Strawberry Thief, she is a rare 1970s cotton romantic bohemian dream by Emcar in Liberty Print. This beauty is OUTSTANDING and is truly one unique and beautiful dress. She has cute cap sleeves, an open neck and a sweet tie detail which crosses over her chest and ties around her back. Her print is wonderous, (see close up!) with arts and crafts florals and sweet strawberry motifs. She has a long flowing skirt with flounce and a high waist. Emcar is a very coveted 60s and 70s British boutique label who were renowned for their high end and beautiful designs. Strawberry Thief is such an amazing example of Emcar in their prime.

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8.

Bust - up to 33" - 34"

Waist - 27" does sit quite high

Length -  57"

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

The Strawberry Thief has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear.

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.
