The latest incarnation of a Ruby Raisin favourite is made from a stunning alpine green cotton with a silky sateen finish that really gives it a luscious, polished touch.
Nina is much loved for the amazing fit, comfort and practical versatility. It looks great worn as is with simple sandals or layers beautifully with warm wintery tones like grey, plum or black. Would also be fun with some bright accessories in a contrasting colour like orange or pink!
Beautifully tailored for a modern, yet classic look that suits lots of body shapes.
Neatly fitted but not tight through the torso, allowing room to move, sit and eat!
Midi length skirt falls below the knee/mid calf on most women which looks great worn with flats, ankle boots or heels.
Nipped in at just the right spot on the waist to highlight the smallest part of the body with centre gathers that drape over the tummy area perfectly.
Large feature pockets.
Zipper opening at back.
Room to layer underneath.
Natural breathable fabric with a little spandex offers ease and stretch over curves and on the waistline.
Professional and structured enough for work. Pretty and fancy enough for an evening out!
97% cotton 3% Spandex. Drill weight with an elegant sateen sheen. Brand new fabric, not vintage. Limited edition. Handmade by a small sewing business in Sydney's inner west. Handwash or machine wash on delicates cycle only, inside a wash bag, using phosphate free detergent.
SIZING & MEASUREMENTS
Well proportioned and works on smaller bodyshapes as well as more voluptuous figures, the bodice being slightly fuller in the bust. If you are petite up top but have a bigger bottom, select your size according to your top size as the skirt has enough flow to allow for varied hip widths.
Sizing is GENEROUS. If you hover inbetween sizes, like you sometimes wear a 10 or a 12 then please select the 10-12 rather than the 12-14. This is more generous than our other Nina Dresses made from linen or vintage fabrics due to the stretch in this fabric. I would recommend your usual size, but just expect it to be a little looser that's all. If you have a black or Chambray one, they are the same fit.
Model with fair hair wears 8-10, is average height with a small bust. Model with dark hair wears 12-14, average height, bigger bust.
To check your size, lay a favourite dress flat, run a tape measure over and compare your measurements at the same points to those below. Just to clarify, these are of the garment NOT the body.
