Our jumpsuits are known for their amazing fit and I've given the original Nina design a little wintery makeover. This one is made from a soft finely ribbed cotton corduroy, with a smooth feel that's closer to velvet than a traditional chunky cord. The leg is also a few centimetres longer than the usual Nina. There's a little bit of stretch in the fabric which provides extra comfort on your curves and ease of movement over layers in winter such as a long sleeved tee or fine knit.
This colour is beautiful deep brown which has a soft ashy undertone. It's a great neutral that's an alternative to black and also still goes with black! It also looks great with pastels like mauve and pink or earthy tones like terracotta and olive green.
If you've never worn a jumpsuit before, then this is the one that will convert you. Much care has been taken to finesse the design with a professional Patternmaker so you won't encounter many of the usual issues of other jumpsuits like fussy ties, shapeless waistlines or the dreaded centre seam that rides up in the most awkward of places!
It looks great worn casually with flats, ankle boots and sneakers or just add heels and some bright jewellery for a bold evening outfit.
Bodice has tailored but not tight form with waist and bust dart for shape.
Scoop neckline and comfortable, full straps.
Pants are simply pleated for a flattering shape and flow across the waist and tummy.
Relaxed, slightly tapered leg.
Ankle length, designed to have a little gap between the hem and the top of your shoe.
Deep feature pockets.
Deep centre seam to avoid riding up.
If you already have one of our jumpsuits you'll notice a small design change from a single to an inverted pleat at the back for a smoother flow over the bottom.
Limited edition, handmade ethically by a small local business in Marrickville. 98% Cotton with 2% Spandex.Handwash or gentle machine wash inside a washbag using mild phosphate free detergent inside a delicates bag. Hot iron but no need if you dry it on a coat hanger. Do not tumble dry.
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
There’s often confusion about what size to buy a jumpsuit because they are a top and bottom combined into one garment!
So if you are evenly proportioned, whether that’s straight up and down or hourglass, just go for your usual size.
If you have a bigger top half than lower half then choose the size you’d wear in a top or dress that accommodates the bust comfortably and the pants section will flow nicely.
If you have a bigger bottom than top then choose the same size you would in pants. It’s better to have a little extra room up top than feel restricted in the lower half.
Consistent with our other styles, so if you already have a piece of Ruby Raisin please select the same size. Average to generous sizing and running true to size as seen on a variety of body shapes, sizes and heights.
If you are extremely tall or have a very long torso and short legs, consider going up a size but most people are wearing their usual size.
First model is average height with bigger bust, wearing size 12. Second model is tall, evenly proportioned, wearing size 14.
