The Tropicana

The Tropicana,  she is a STUNNING super rare 70s patchwork print prairie cotton sundress. 

The Tropicana, this lady is allll kinds of wow! She has the most amazing colourway and amazing patchwork novelty print. She has cotton lace trims and broderie anglaise panels. True vintage patchwork dresses are rare and hard to come by, this beauty is such a fine example of such!

This girl measures to approx UK size 10.

Bust - 36"

Waist - 28"

Length -  55"

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

The Tropicana 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, she has very slight discolouration on her cotton lace trim under one side of the underarm and a few small, faint, minor marks at her hem. All very unnoticeable and do not detract.

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.
