Meet Sycamore, she is a beautiful and romantic 70s cotton prairie beauty by Dorothy Perkins. I just love shirring and this cute shirred bodice is an absolute winner for me! She has a gorgeous dark floral print on a black base, puff sleeves and a flowing skirt. I could totally see her worn over a roll neck and paired with boots for when the weather really does begin to cool, and she is so seasonless she will even work through summer too.. I hope she finds the most lovely home today.
This girl is quite flexible in fit and would work on UK sizes 6/8/10 best
Bust - up to 35"
Empire Waist - up to 33"
Length - 55"
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.
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.
