The Umber

Meet Umber, she is a stunning 1970s cotton prairie beauty by Quad. She is sleeveless in design, and can be paired with a blouse, or roll neck sweater for autumn or worn as a sundress for summer. She has a stunning rich brown colourway with beautiful autumnal floral print, button through bodice and beautiful cotton lace trims. I absolutely love this one, she is filled with versatility and is just such a pretty.. I know she will be loved wherever she goes!

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10

Bust - up to 36"

Waist - 28"

Length - 54"

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

The Umber 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. Her lace trims do have a slightly pink tone, this is slight colour transfer, does 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.
