The Tapestry Rose, she is a stunning 1970s cotton blend romantic prairie dream. Her labels have faded but I can verify this is a Vicky Vaughn dress, who was a fantastic USA label during the 1960s and 1970s. She has the most amazing broadscale floral print with large bird looking features, lace cuffs and panelling and a corset feature bust. This beauty is a Romantic dream and it is so rare we find dresses as beautiful as this, I cannot wait to see where Tapestry Rose continues her next chapter.
This girl would work on UK sizes 8/10 best.
Bust - up to 36"
Waist - 28"
Length - 56"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
Tapestry Rose 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 does have some minor signs of wear and her inside seams are not overlocked, which was very common for USA made dresses of this period.
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.
