The Tawny

Meet Tawny, the most incredible 1970s prairie mini ever by Richard Shops. It is so rare we get this style of mini, and when we do, she is usually instantly rehomed with one of you... Tawny has the most amazing trapeze cut and is free fitting from the bust down. She has a large dagger collar, amazing soft draped sleeves, cotton lace details and a stunning dark rustic floral print. Her body is made from an amazing cotton and her sleeves a soft manmade fibre. 

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

Bust - 34" 

Waist - FREE

Length -  38"

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

Tawny 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.

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.
