Hello Sweet Brier, a gorgeous 1970s cotton prairie beauty, and an absolute fave of mine. This beauty is just so special, her labels have sadly been cut, but I suspect she is a Candi Jones dress. She has the most gorgeous easy to wear bohemian silhouette with tiered skirt, puff sleeves and a gorgeous bodice. She has the most STUNNING print combo, with all kinds of romantic florals in the best colours ever. Another detail I love about this beauty is the decorative rose buttons at her neckline, I mean how adorable. This beauty is a classic and very beautiful prairie dress and beauties like this rarely come into my hands. I cannot wait to see where she travels to next...
This girl would work on UK sizes 10 small 12 best, could easily work on a UK 8 too.
Bust - 35"
Waist - 30" - has attached side ties to adjust fit.
Length - 59"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
Sweet Brier 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.
