The Sugar Plum

The Sugar Plum, she is a stunning late 70s early 80s sparkling raspberry chiffon beauty by Shubette. She is lined.

The Sugar Plum is such a beauty! She has the most gorgeous colour with shimmering lurex gold thread stripes. She has a statement silhouette with ruffle features and cropped puffy sleeves. She slips on over the head and has an elasticated waist. This girl is screaming for a good boogie!

This girl measures to approx UK size 10/12. Could possibly work on a busty UK 8 too.

Bust 36"

Waist - up to 32"

Length -  57"

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

The Sugar Plum 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, the only thing to note is she has slight damage to her belt. Very minor and unnoticeable, see last photo.

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.
