The Valentina

The Valentina, she is a stunning romantic 1970s cotton prairie midi length dream by Richard Shops.

The Valentina, she really is a floral poetic dream. She has the most stunning romantic floral print, corset feature bust, cotton lace trims, split flutter sleeves with tie feature and a flounce to her hem. We really adore this beauty here at Pansy, she is the perfect midi length dream. 

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8/10 nicely. She can be adjusted around her bust and waist with her corset feature.

Bust - up to 36"

Waist - up to 28"

Length -  42"

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

The Valentina 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, some minor signs of wear.

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.
