Inspired by flirty, late-1950's dress silhouettes, I designed & handmade the TrickyDickie Dress to be fetching & functional (the removable dickie inside the front bodice lets you bare as much cleavage as you dare, or pair it with a colorful under-layer = super-tricky-good!)

• Bust = 52 inches around
• Waist = 42 inches around
• Hips = 70+ inches around (with gathers not opened up, so total hip is over 70")
• Lengths (measured at center back) = 16.5 inches from neckline to waist + 1.5 inch tall waistband + 25.5 inches from waist to bottom edge (so 43.5 total length)
• Sleeves = 19 inches around bottom edges
• Collar = 7.5 inches wide at center back
(send me a convo if you'd like more measurements or have fitting questions & I'd be happy to give you personalized advice. For tips on how to measure for your best fit, see:

TrickyDickie Dress design details:
• shirt-waist style bodice with a wide & deep picture neckline
• classic, generous-sized, notched collar (finished with top stitching in black)
• separate dickie under front neckline (held in place by hidden buttons & snaps)
• short (cap-length) sleeves
• separate waistband for a belted look (without needing a belt)
• full skirt with tiny pleats at the waist
• hidden, side-seam skirt pockets
• closes with 4 vintage, black buttons at center front (2 above/at waist + 2 below)

Fabric is vintage yardage = woven, 100% cotton broadcloth with a nifty print of faux-quilt piecing in shades of black & maroon (with touches of green and brown) on a cream colored ground (see close-up shots for best view of the fabric print).
