Designed (by me) for effortless wear-ability, I've named this one my "GoTo Dress" 'cus it's easy to dress up or keep casual, wear to work or out on a date, pair with a blazer & pumps or a hoodie & sneaks. Perfect for days when you're running late & need to dress-and-go!, but still know that you'll look pulled-together & not regret your bleary-early-morning clothing choice come the (inevitable) mid-afternoon, post-lunch, waist-expansion-hours.

• Bust = 53 inches around
• Waist = 48 inches around
• Hips = 55 inches around
• Length (at center back) = 18 inches neckline to bottom of waist panel (+) 24.5 inches waist to bottom edge
• Sleeves = 6 inches long (from shoulder), 19 inches around at bottom edges

(please note: dress is pinned back--through the waist--in some photos because my model is just too puny for this loveliness; use the measurements above to compare to your clothing/body to judge your fit.)

The GoTo Dress combines classic,1950's design elements with modern style-lines and handmade, quality construction details, like:
• a just-roomy-enough bodice, shaped with princess seams & a separate lower (waistline) panel that gently curves up in the center front (for visual slimming + bust-lifting powers)
• soft, v-neckline, accented with a Peter Pan collar & bow (in a print-coordinating, solid color fabric)
• short, cap sleeves (fully lined)
• knee-length, generous bottom/skirt, with extra room through the hips & rear, cut to skim over curves, but not be too full or in-the-way
• hip-line front pockets (yes: 2, *real* sized, use-able pockets!)

>>>Repeat-Customer Tip: the GoTo Dress is similar in cut & style to my Slimuette Dress design, but it has a slightly longer torso (lower waistline), inset sleeves (which can be custom-ordered longer or shorter, btw), and new neckline & collar details. For comparison, here's a Slimuette: https://www.etsy.com/listing/94840604/slimuette-dress-plus-size-green-and

A few last details:
- main dress fabric is a vintage yardage (probably 1990s) woven 100% cotton that's crisp & lovely = see last image for a close-up of the bodice in natural sunlight. Collar + bow fabric is also vintage yardage: a soft, woven synthetic (probably polyester) in a coordinating, turquoise blue color.
- dress closes with a center-back, invisible zipper (which is also a vintage trim)
- bottom hem is blind-stitched (so it's crisp & durable, but hidden when worn)
- interior seams are fully finished & ready for years of (machine)wash-&-wear, easy care.
