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), finished with a contrasting, coral binding
• sleeveless, but with full-shoulder-coverage (bound finishing, like neckline)
• small, smart-phone-sized chest pocket (right where you need it)
• A-line shape (see last image for dress shape with belt off)
• big, front patch pockets (that are fully lined in coral too)
• separate, narrow (1/2") coral-fabric belt, perfect for tying everything up, but flexible enough so you can make your "waist" be high or low, loose or snug.

Fabrics are a vintage (1980s) sweatshirt-style knit yardage in a vibrant blue--sooo soft & fuzzy on the inside!--and a vintage (1970s) coral color knit used for trim.

A few last handmade construction details:
• dress is slip-on (no closures, but plenty of room & stretch for the on & off)
• neckline & armholes are finished with bias & shaped bindings that are securely topstitched in place (in black thread) for a clean, smooth edge. Bottom hem is rolled & top-stitched in black.
• all interior seams are fully finished (serger overlock), so this dress is easy-care: machine wash & tumble dry (fabric's been pre-washed too).

DRESS MEASUREMENTS: fabric has 3 inches more of (comfortable) stretch across the garment (actually stretches more than this, but I don't recommend wearing it that tight).
• Bust = 48 inches around + stretch
• Waist = 50 inches around + stretch
• Hips = 60 inches around + stretch
• Length = 39 inches from slightly scooped neckline to bottom edge (at center back), from back shoulder to bottom edge is 41 long
• Belt = 1/2 inch wide by 72 inches long

(clothing "sizes" are totally bogus, so I suggest comparing the bust & hip measurements to those of a dress you already own+love or to your body+wearing-ease; model in photos is about a US size 20W.)
