Meet Raspberry Sorbet, she is an outstanding and truly special 1970s shimmering sparkly lurex dream dress in a juicy berry shade. Honestly, I screamed inside when I sourced another of these beauties! In 2020 I had this very dress and she was by far one of my most popular pieces that year. She has an incredible silhouette with fully shirred bodice (perfect for looking glam whilst indulging on those festive treats), stunning sleeves, peplum frill and a high collar. Raspberry Sorbet is one of those 70s dresses which just simply is the best and is truly so special. I pray she finds the best home, although I am sure she will!
This girl measures is quite flexible due to her shirred bodice, she measures to approx UK size 10/12 but could also possibly work on a UK 8.
Bust - 34" - 40"
Waist - 30" - 34"
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 at home on a cool setting. She is in good vintage condition, she has a few minor signs of wear.
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.
