The Sweet Pea

Meet Sweet Pea, a gorgeous green prairie dream... This beauty is made from a lovely lightweight cotton voile and is lined. Sweet Pea has such a gorgeous silhouette, with puff sleeves, empire line waist and a ruched bust area, which is so romantic. She has beautiful lace features around her cuffs and bodice and the most stunning broadscale floral print one can find. Green is actually a really rare colour to find in true vintage pieces, and this beauty really is such a beautiful example of such...

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 best.

Bust - up to 34"

Empire Waist - 28"

Length -  54"

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

The Sweet Pea 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. She had a few small holes at her hem, very small, and I have sealed these up with invisible facing. They are unnoticeable and do not detract.

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.
