The Viola

The Viola, she is a stunning 70s white cotton blend floral prairie dream. She is lined.

The Viola, she is a real cutie! She has a gorgeous silhouette with ruffle sleeves, empire line cut, scoop style neck and tie features. She has a gorgeous embroidered yellow floral print. This girl is just so perfect for summer days.

This girl measures to approx UK size 10/12.

Bust - 36"

Empire Waist - 32"

Length -  55"

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

The Viola 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, her previous owner had taken her up by hand, so I have let her down back to her original length. There is a faint line where the sewing was, but this is barely noticeable and does not effect wear. See last photo for more. This has been reflected in her price.

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.
