The Wheat

The Wheat, she is a gorgeous 1970s floral cotton prairie puff sleeve dream by Hamells of London. She is not lined.

The Wheat, she has the most stunning sweetheart neckline, patchwork style panelling which combines rustic florals with lined broderie, amazing puff sleeves, tie detailing to her waist and stunning flounce hem. She is a true babe and such a good rare label.

This girl measures to a UK 8/10

Bust - up to 35"

Waist - 29" - 30"

Length -  60"

For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6. This dress has been tied in with her side ties to fit.

The Wheat has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed on a 30 degree setting at home. She is in good vintage condition.

She has minimal signs of vintage wear. But please bare in mind that our pieces are true vintage, they’ve been danced in and they have been lived in, so all 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.
