The Winterberry, she is a gorgeous and very unique cotton prairie beauty by Samuel Sherman. She is not lined.
The Winterberry is just so so so unusual, she is a gorgeous soft teal colour with red ric rac trims, she has a stunning unique graphic style print. The things we love most about this girl are her stunning peplum feature and her broderie anglaise collar and frill trims to her sleeves. She is just so stunning.
This girl measures to approx size 10 small 12.
Bust - 36"
Waist - 29"
Length - 58"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Winterberry has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed on a 30 degree setting at home. She is in goodvintage condition, she has a patch of discolouration on the lower half of her skirt. To me, this isn't too noticeable. With it being on the lower part of the skirt it is in a very forgiving place and does not detract from the beauty of this piece. This has been hugely reflected on her price, see last photo for more.
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.
