The Sycamore

Meet Sycamore, she is a stunning and super coveted 1970s classic prairie beauty by St Michaels, although she has lost her tags, I can verify this is a St Michaels dress. Every single time I source a version of this dress, it flies out of the studio door.. she just is the ultimate classic 70s prairie! She has a gorgeous cut with sweet puff sleeves, a nipped in waist and a flowing skirt with a flounce. The most gorgeous thing about this beauty has got to be her colour with that striped floral print, it is just stunning and so autumn! She also has a gorgeous lace yoke with a frill collar and velvet ribbon detailing. I love Sycamore, as you can probably tell, and I cannot wait to see where she is headed!

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8/10 best.

Bust - up to 34"

Waist - 29" - this can be cinched with her waist ties.

Length -  56"

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

The Sycamore 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, including a pin prick size mark to her skirt.

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.
