The Tapestry

The Tapestry, she is an absolutely STUNNING rare midi dress in a Liberty print cotton fabric by coveted Scottish designer of the period Marion Donaldson.

Tapestry is absolutely gorgeous. She has the most stunning fabric with a tapestry style print in the most beautiful colours. She has a corduroy collar, cuffs and belt in a forest green shade. She fastens with buttons down her front. This beauty is a rare and fine example of late 70s Marion Donaldson.

This girl measures to approx UK size 12.

Bust - 40"

Waist - 32"

Length -  48"

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

Tapestry 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, her belt closes with a safety pin on the inside, not quite sure if this is supposed to be this way but its not noticeable when worn.

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.
