The Zest

Meet Zest, an insane 70s cotton sundress in the most zesty shade of green! I believe this beauty is a 70s Topshop dress although her tags have been cut. She has a gorgeous easy to wear shape with empire line waist and beautiful tiered skirt. She also has a cute floral in a blue and pink. This beauty is such a good summer dress and is crying out for some sunshine!

This girl would work on UK sizes 6/8 best.

Bust - 33"

Empire Waist - 28"

Length -  53"

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

The Zest has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed at home on a cool setting. She is in good wearable vintage condition but is not perfect. She has some slight fading in places and some of the edges around her underarm are coming away a little, but they are intact due to having another inner seam. She also has two faint lines at her hem where previously she has been taken up and let back down again. All in all she is still good and wearable, she clearly has just been well loved in her previous life. See photos 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.
