The Raspberry Ripple

Meet Raspberry Ripple, the most amazing balloon sleeve midi dream in the world. She is by a 70s Boutique called Indigo and is made from a stunning fine wool fabric. She is lined. Raspberry Ripple has the most insane print, like, INSANE. She has an amazing silhouette with stunning sleeves, high collar and a full skirt. She is absolutely a firm fave here at Pansy...

This girl would work on UK size 8/10, could work on a UK 6 too.

Bust - up to 34" approx, hard to measure due to the cut of her sleeves.

Waist - 29" - does sit quite high

Length -  47"

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

Raspberry Ripple 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 does have some small signs of wear which is to be expected with vintage fine wool, she has some spots of wear to her collar and a few in other places, but nothing is extremely noticeable and does not detract at all. 

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.
