The Blood Thorn

The Blood Thorn, she is an amazing super rare Jean Varon hand screen printed taffeta dream.

Blood Thorn is a true rarity. She is by coveted designer of the period Jean Varon and truly is a collectors piece. She has the most gorgeous structured taffeta fabric with contrasting prints which have all been hand screen printed. She is sleeveless with a V neck and has been styled over a frill collar blouse which is NOT included in the sale. 

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10.

Bust - 35" - 36"

Waist- 28"

Length -  55"

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

The Blood Thorn has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be hand washed in cold water at home or dry cleaned. She is in good vintage condition, she has slight print fading around the very edge of her arm holes and a few very faint small patches of discolouration in places to her skirt, so faint my camera couldn't pick them up.

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.
