The Whitby Jet Dress has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. This girl is dry clean only, do not attempt to wash at home. Spot cleaning can be done, please contact me for instructions as and when. She is in wearable vintage condition, she does have some damage. She had a graze on the side of her shoulder which has been closed up and secured with facing. This means the damage will not spread and is much less visible than before. This has been dramatically reflected in her price. It is not really too noticeable now it is sealed and there is still lots of life left in this beauty.
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.
