Another dress adventure in pastel hues this time. I was searching a fabric that hold well for pleating and draping without beeing heavy and this one is perfect. The weave is just a bit loose to have his charm and texture and its not sheer. It is cotton/linen in a gingham pattern. The gingham dress is folded irregularly for a modern touch. The top hem of the babydoll dress is hand "serge" with blue yarn made of silk and wool on a raw edge. The bottom hem has been hand frayed and enhanced with embroidery with the same yarn. The cotton eyelet lace trim is my third try on this dress. The previous styles I tried were not satisfiying. Its is tea dyed for a vintage effect as well as the lace around the collar and the flowers. It is not a premade eyelet trim, its from a fabric that I cutted, dyed and folded and hand saw to the bottom of the lilac dress. All the top folding of the jumper dress is hand sewn carefully. The halter top dress straps are made from a blend of silk and linen in blue grey and there is a tiny gold thread within. The flowers are hand made to adorn the neck. It makes very shabby chic dress but the backless gives it a sexy twist. I love dropping hems, so there is one again on this dress.
I conceived this halter dress to be confortable in summer, it is not fitted and let the wind keep you fresh. Its a long short style, so when you walk it moves beautifully. But, even not fitted it has his part a sexy with is beautiful back cleavage. It would make unique alternative wedding dress.
***THIS DRESS IS MADE TO ORDER***
This babydoll dress will be made to order at the same size than the original of the photos. I will do all that is possible on earth to do a very similar design, but it will still be different, slightly. Also, I don't have this eyelet fabric for the hem trim anymore, actually the trim will be like the one into the last photo, its a crocheted like fabric that I hand dyed with tea. For the straps, if I could fit them into my fabric remnant pieces I will take the same fabric, if not I have a very similar fabric, but with no gold undertones.
My customers are my number 1 priority. Allow me a week to complete your order once we discussed all details. If I can I will do it within 48 hours.
***The last picture show you a custom design of this dress with a bralette removable, this bralette is offered for 30$ extra. Adding this will make the straps not alterable on the sides, so if the dress is too small of too big you will need to deplace the buttons of the back closure. This crocheted like lace trim is available and unless you want me to search for another trim this is what I will use for your dress, it is hand dyed with tea. The scalopped lace around the collard is no longer available, but I have plenty of other lace that will give a similar effect.

I take custom orders for matching headdress to your bohemian dress, see this example:
***Sizing: will fits better on medium to large sizes US 6-8-10. Shown on dress from size 8.***
I would recommend to compare those measures to your actual clothes for a better fitting. I made the straps longer (this is hidden inside) so it would be easy to alter for customization.
The top measures 40" over the bust area measured flat; and lightly pulled. it is made to be worn loose and its shown on a 36" dress form bust.
The hips measured flat are 82" pulled
Its length in front is 22" ;
Its length in back is 36" ;
The halter part that start from the top edge of the top, pass over the neck and join the other top edge measures 22". It could be altered by adding 1" if you are particularly tall.
If you need assistance for fitting, please ask me I'm available to assist you and answer to all you question promptly. I will gladly accept returns and exchanges if it doesn't fit.
