The Sweetshrub

The Sweetshrub, she is a STUNNING super beautiful 1970s handmade midaxi length sundress and jacket set. She is a cotton or cotton blend girl and she is lined.

The Sweetshrub, we LOVE this absolute cutie here at Pansy. Her dress is so super full and swishy with a tiered skirt. Her bodice has a tie to her front and a zip down the centre middle, which is barely visible when worn. She also has the cutest little cotton cropped jacket to match, she seriously can not get any more cute.  She has been made with so much love to such a high standard, she truly is such a special piece.

This girl measures to approx UK size 6/8

Bust - 33"

Under Bust - 32"

Length -  52"

Jacket Bust - 36"

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

The Sweetshrub has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. She is in good vintage condition.

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.
