The Waterlily

Say Hello to the Waterlily, a remarkable handcrafted 1970s cotton green prairie dream. This beauty is just outstanding. She has a beautiful almost Liberty style print in the most gorgeous vibrant apple green colour and a beautiful smock like silhouette. She has a high collar and huge statement sleeves with deep cuffs and gorgeous white trims. She has such a rare shape, its unusual to get prairie dresses which are relaxed and free fitting. She would look incredible with white trainers for a modern 70s spring vibe!

This girl would work on UK sizes 10/12, could also work slightly oversized on a UK 8.

Bust - 37"

Waist - FREE as she is a smock shape - Measures 41" across

Length -  55"

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

The Waterlily 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.
