Inspired by flirty, early-1950's dress shapes, I designed & handmade the Dandy Dress to be sexy & curvy, but still keep a gal fully covered: fine & dandy!

Design details include:
• a raised, v-neckline (with a tiny, stand-up collar in back) to frame the face
• bias-cut, lower front bodice panel with delicate gathers above, at the bust
• back bodice shaped with a contoured, lower panel too
• cap-length sleeves
• full, gathered skirt, hemmed to bottom-of-the-knee length (see measurements below)

Fabric is a woven, 100% cotton sateen, that's vintage yardage from the 1960s. Feels smooth & soft, with a slight, polished sheen = retro-perfect. True color is hard to explain: sort of aqua -meets- ocean or seafoam (pictures are taken in natural light).

A few last handmade construction details:
• entire bodice/top is fully lined in the same fabric (so, no show-through!), and finished by hand so there's no stitching visible on the outside = superb!
• closes with a side-seam zipper (love this, 'cus it's easy to reach!)
• bottom hem is finely double-rolled & topstitched in matching thread
• all interior seams are fully finished (overcast stitched), so this dress is easy-care: machine wash & tumble or line dry.

• Bust = 47 inches around
• Waist = 38 inches around
• Hips = 60+ inches around (with gathers not opened up, so total hip is over 70")
• Lengths (measured at center back) = 16.5 inches from neckline (below collar) to waist + 25.5 inches from waist to bottom edge
• Sleeves = 18 inches around bottom edges
