The Raspberry Sorbet

The Raspberry Sorbet, she is a stunning super rare shirred lurex beauty by Richard Shops. She is not lined.

The Raspberry Sorbet is just a true spectacle and quite simply the best lurex beauty we have ever seen here at Pansy. She has a full shirred bodice, peplum frill feature, pie crust neck and Biba-esque balloon sleeves. This beaut is the epitome of our Christmas edit and really will make a statement, no matter what your plans are this festive season!

This girl is very flexible in sizing due to her elasticated shirring all the way around her bodice. She would work on UK sizes 6-12 nicely.

Bust - 32" - 38"

Waist - 26" - 32"

Length -  57"

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

The Raspberry Sorbet has been freshly laundered and is ready to wear. She can safely be washed on a 30 degree setting at home. She is in good vintage 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.
