Inspired by 20 years of riot grrl revolution, I designed & handmade the RiotLady Dress to encourage ladies to make riots, not diets! With all the retro-cuteness & one-of-a-kind style of my other dress designs, the RiotLady has a more flexible fit & ease-of-wear, 'cus who want's to worry about busting a seam when you've taken it to the streets? Revolution, fat-lady-style now!

Design details include:
• a contoured, scooped neckline (in a wider, expanded-keyhole shape)
• sleeveless, but with full-shoulder-coverage
• chest pocket that's perfectly smart-phone sized (trimmed with heart applique)
• elastic waist (+ a separate, tie belt) (see 4th pic for dress with belt off)
• semi-full, aline shaped bottom, finished with a delicately pleated bottom band that's decked-out with appliqued hearts (+ one broken heart to keep it real)

Fabrics are all vintage, woven (non-stretch) yardage with polka dot prints: black is a rayon-blend (soft & supple but not at all too thin), blue is a poly/synthetic blend (silkier), and white is a 100% cotton (nice & crisp).

A few last handmade construction details:
• dress is slip-on (no closures, but plenty of room for the on & off--see measurements below)
• neckline & armholes are finished with bias trim bands (in blue)
• all interior seams are fully finished (serger overlock), so this dress is easy-care: machine wash & tumble dry, no ironing needed!

• Bust = 52 inches around
• Waist = 45 inches around (totally flat), 45 inches around (comfortably stretched), 53 inches around (absolute maximum)
• Hips = 55 inches around
• Length (measured at center back) = 14 inches from scooped neckline to waist + 22 inches from waist to bottom edge (back shoulder to waist measures 17" long)

(clothing "sizes" are totally bogus, so I suggest comparing these measurements to those of a dress you already own+love or to your body+2 or 3 inches of wearing-ease; you can also send me a convo if you'd like more measurements or have fitting questions & I'd be happy to give you personalized advice)
