The Witching Hour

Meet Witching Hour, she is a beautiful and totally luscious 1970s velvet gothic dream dress. Her colour is black, but also looks darkest blue in different lights, she is made from a beautiful velvet which has slight stretch. She has a beautiful scoop frill cotton lace neckline and gorgeous frill cotton lace cuffs and a flattering empire line waist with attached side ties to cinch. Witching Hour is a true witchy dream dress, she has that sultry yet demure gothic edge, and I cannot wait to see how amazing she looks on one of you!

This girl would work on UK sizes 8/10/12 best. She does have slight give.

Bust - stretches up to 40"

Waist - up to 32" max - does sit high

Length -  59"

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

The Witching Hour 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.

ALL vintage velvet comes with small signs of wear to the pile of the fabric. This is part of the charm.

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.
