The Sujon

The Sujon, she is a super super rare 1970s cotton prairie dream by Sujon. Sold in Liberty circa 1974.

Sujon is truly something very special, and if you seen my post on Instagram a few days back, you will have seen the iconic Olivia Newton John wearing her version of this dress in March 1974. 

This beauty has the most amazing print, with a romantic chintz damask feel with a contrasting colour block base. She has a tiered skirt and a beautiful silhouette with a deep V neckline and short sleeves with puff shoulders. She is adorned in stunning lace trims and has fabric covered buttons down her front.

This is a really rare coveted beauty, and truly a one off find. I cannot wait to see where she carries on her next life...

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10, could possibly work on a UK 6 too.

Bust - 34" - 35" 

Empire Waist - 30"

Length -  56.5"

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

Sujon has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. Please dry clean only. She is in good vintage condition, the only flaw to note is one of her buttons as slight fraying. This has been reflected in her price.

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.
