Combining a classic (early-60's) shape with a neon-bright (1980s), graffiti-vibe, this version of my V-V Dress is one of the coolest dresses I've made all month! Hand-built to make you stand-out (in a good way), but still be comfy (vintage cotton fabric!), take your stuff along (pockets!), and add your own twist (with a separate, fully-finished tie accessory).

• bust = 48.5 inches around
• waist = 44 inches around
• hips (measured 7" below waist) = 53 inches around
• lengths =
•• bodice, from point of V-neckline to waistline at center back = 12.5 inches
•• bodice, from back shoulder seam @ neckline to waistline = 17 inches
•• skirt, from waistline to bottom hem at center back = 27 inches
• accessorizing tie = 2 inches wide x 30 inches long

This version of my V-V Dress design has:
• a wide, v-neckline front & back (back is cut a bit higher for more coverage)
• waistline darts for shaping & fully-lined bodice for shape & comfort (lined in soft, vintage cotton = see last image for close-up)
• a knee-length, straight-skirt bottom with side slits trimmed out in neon-pink cotton for a flash of color
• BIG front patch pockets (lined + top inside edge trimmed with more neon-pink)
• matching tie accessory (yes, I loving using *all* of the vintage fabric I find), that works as a hair-tie, head-band or bow, neck-accent (as seen in photos), doubled up around a wrist, as a bow on a purse/bag strap, or any other tie-able ideas you can dream up...
• side-zipper closure
* hidden lingerie straps (elastic + snaps) at the inside shoulders = helps keep you all in place & not peeking out a bra strap + a nice, handmade detail, yes?

Fabric is a vintage, 1980's cotton twill or light canvas--crisp & dense but not too stiff--with a spectacular print pattern of striped scribbles and spatters in deep emerald green with accents in neon pink, neon yellow, and neon orange.

I've pre-washed & dried this vintage fabric to remove any "vintage odor" & light staining = everything's great *except* one stain that would not come out (see last image for close-up of this). I placed this area out-of-the-way (under arm region) when cutting the dress, but want to note that this vintage fabric is *not perfect*. Seriously, the print is so busy & the stain is so minor & light, it's not a big deal, but if this will bother you, well, you know yourself better than I do...
