The Yellow Poppy, she is a STUNNING super rare early 70s soft cotton mini dress by C&A. She is not lined.
The Yellow Poppy, she is a real cutie! We rarely find minis this good making this girl even more special. She has the most stunning soft oversized print, which we think is a yellow poppy, puffy poet style sleeves... and of course, THAT smocking. Her cuffs, collar and bust line are smocked with the most beautiful green smocking. She really is too beautiful.
This girl is quite flexible in size due to the smocking in her bust, she should work on UK sizes 8 to a 10/12 nicely.
Bust - 30" - 38" max stretch
Waist - FREE
Length - 36.5"
For reference our mannequin, Norma, measures to a UK 6.
The Yellow Poppy has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a 30 degree setting. She is in goodvintage condition.
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.
