The Wallis

Meet Wallis, she is a beautiful and absolutely iconic 1970s cotton dream dress by iconic british brand Wallis. I adore this dress, I mean, she is iconic.. With a very sultry biba-esque cut, with that beautiful open plunge neckline, cinched waist with beautiful ties and those stunning sleeves. She has a gorgeous dusky blue colourway with sweet sprig floral print. I mean, this is a dress definitely not for the faint hearted, and I simply cannot wait to see where she is heading today.. I know she will find the best home and be treasured forever and more..

This girl would work on UK sizes 4/6/8 - suited to a smaller bust.

Bust - 32" - 34"

Waist - FREE - loose cut at the back. Measures 38" before cinching.

Length -  50"

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

The Wallis 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. 

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.
