With so much love for our jumpsuits, it was time for a high summer version, so we created Nina's little sister!
That perfectly fitting bodice of the Nina Dress and Jumpsuit has been cut away ever so slightly for a deeper scoop at the front and lower back-neckline and the most perfect shorts have been added. They have the fun and practicality of shorts, but with the silhouette of a skirt, for a flattering and comfortable line across the hips and thighs.
The soft cotton denim is mid weight, in a classic 70's style blue wash. It's sure to become a favourite, simply thrown on with sandals or sneakers, cute worn plain or a go crazy with colour and accessories to add your own personal flair.
As always we have taken great care to finesse the design with a professional Patternmaker for the ultimate in wearability and comfort. You won't encounter many of the design issues of other suits like stringy straps, baggy shapeless waistlines or the dreaded centre seam that rides up in the most awkward of places!
Tailored but not tight silhouette. Fits and flares in all the rights spots.
Comfortable, full straps
Pleated at the waist for a flattering drape over the tummy
Darts on bum for flattering smooth line
Relaxed, wide leg shorts, loose on thighs, with an a-line form that finish above the knee
Deep feature pockets
Long centre seam to avoid any riding up
Lovely soft fabric half way between a like chambray and jeans weight
Limited edition, ethically handmade by a small local business
No stretch or shrinkage after washing
Cold handwash or gentle machine wash inside a washbag using mild phosphate detergent
Hot iron but looks great un-ironed if you like a more natural texture. Just hang it up to dry on a coathanger rather than peg on the washing line.
HOW TO CHOOSE YOUR SIZE
There’s often confusion about what size to buy a jumpsuit or playsuit 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. If your garment tag says 12, that indicates 12-14 online as I like to describe my sizes as a range to indicate they are generous and allow for human variation.
Please get in touch any time with questions- always happy to help!
