The Wisteria

The Wisteria, she is a stunning 70s prairie style beauty. Her skirt is a cotton gauze and her sleeves and bodice are a soft floaty chiffon man made fibre, she is lined.

The Wisteria, she is such an unusual girl. She has the most stunning wallpaper printed skirt, billowing sheer sleeves, mandarin collar and key hole opening at her neckline. We rarely get beauties like this girl here at Pansy. She is just so special.

This girl measures to approx UK size 8/10.

Bust - 34"

Waist - 28"

Length -  55"

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

The Wisteria 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 very very faint underarm yellowing, which can barely be seen, this has faded lots with cleaning, I imagine after more washes it will fade away totally. 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.
