The Water Lily

The Water Lily, she is a STUNNING rare bohemian prairie dream by Melissa Lane. She is a cotton girl and is lined in a lightweight cotton gauze.

The Water Lily, we love love love this beauty here at Pansy, she has a smocked bodice, handkerchief sleeves, a full skirt and a super stunning bohemian print. Seriously this girl is a beauty.

This girl is quite flexible in size due to the smocking in her bodice, we best recommend her for UK sizes 6/8/10.

Bust - up to 38" max

Waist - up to 28" max

Length -  57"

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

The Water Lily 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, she has a few very 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.
