A new addition to our Rayna range is our short Rayna Pinafore, designed to be worn with tights in winter she's a perfect, comfy little pinafore that will fill a gap in your wardrobe you never knew you had.
FEATURES: We love this brand new shape we have created for winter with it's square neckline and elasticated shirred back panel. She is a mini length (though not scandalously short), one of the only pieces we create that's this length and she is beautifully gathered in just the right amount of ruffle. The back panel has enough stretch that it holds you in, but is incredibly comfortable and accomodating. The length works SO well for winter to show a little leg and we secretly LOVE Rayna with a good pair of ankle boots, or a western boot if you're feeling the country vibes. She has a cute double button strap which tucks into and under the bodice for a neat finish, this also means you can adjust the strap length by moving/resewing the button up or down on the strap.
HOW TO WEAR: Wear our Rayna Pinafore on all your winter adventures! She is really just the most spectacular little piece for winter. Effortlessly cool but also practical, she gives you all the coverage you need without feeling exposed. Despite being a "strappy" dress, she gives good coverage under the arm and around the bra line and the shirring gives nice coverage at the back if you want to wear her in summer. This style is so cute as a go-to piece worn with a simple skivvy underneath, a good pair of boots and some tights. This little ruffley skirt in this pinafore is lovely and full but not as full as the short Rayna skirt, it's also a few cm shorter. We refined our shape to create something that works in thicker winter weight fabrics, so the skirt has just the right amount of kick in the ruffle without it being too full. We love the fitted waist without it being too tight to wear with layers underneath.
FABRIC: Ikat Linen fabric which has lovely body and structure without being too stiff. Cream base with a black textured "spot" which has a textured edge, making this a similar feel to a polka dot but with less definition. This is a mid weight which you'd want to wear black tights under, or flesh coloured underwear. It is not too sheer, but it will show colour underneath slightly, luckily the ruffled skirt means you will not see much as it is not close to the body!
SIZING: XXS to 4X.
This is a generous fitting dress, we recommend you stick to the smaller side of your sizing (eg: if you wear either M or L in our styles, definitely buy a medium not the large) or if in doubt size down. There is a LOT of stretch across the back of this dress, at least 15-20cm more than of the rested (not stretched) measurements in the size guide due to the elastic and gathering across the shirred panel.
MODEL SIZES: Liza wears size XS for photos. Chris wears XXS for photos. Both ladies wear these sizes in our Rayna dresses normally.
