welcome to HissyFit's dress clearance spectacular! This dress has all the one-of-a-kind, hand-made, indie designer goodness of my other frocks, only it's priced to sell since I won't be making any more of this design. (Originally priced at $150, now 50% off! WHAT?!? Yup, it's a total steal/deal!)

Inspired by flirty, 1950's dresses, I designed & handmade (from scratch) this Cakewalk Dress to be fun to wear & demurely sexy, in a retro-girl-next-door kind of way. It's easy, breezy, and totally practical (with a hidden front zipper + skirt pockets).

• Bust = 48 inches around
• Waist = 43 inches around
• Hips = 58 inches around
• Bodice Length = 7 inches from scooped neckline to waist (measured at center back), 17 inches long from shoulder seam (at neckline) to waist
• Skirt/Bottom Length = 25 inches from waist to bottom edge
(send me a convo/message 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: http://www.hissyfitoly.com/how-to-measure.html

Cakewalk Dress design details include:
• a wider, scooped neckline (back is cut lower but still above bra-back-strap level)
• sleeveless, fitted bodice/top with shaping darts (designed for real curves)
• generous, a-line skirt/bottom with 2 hidden, side-seam pockets
• closes with a hidden, center-front, metal zipper from neckline to hip-level (it's under the flap!), plus a snap on top to keep the flap closed

Fabric is un-used, vintage yardage: woven, 100% cotton seersucker with a yarn-dyed plaid pattern (so the inside of the fabric looks just as good as the outside). Fabric is most likely from the 1970's or 80's (before cottons got all cheap/thin/ugh!) = this one's nice and soft, breathable but not-at-all sheer, & absolutely lover-ly.

A few last handmade construction details:
• neckline + armholes are finished with bias binding (navy), rolled inside & topstitched in place in white (for a crisp, clean edge that'll keep it's shape)
• bottom hem is fine-rolled & topstitched in white
• all exposed, interior seams are fully finished (overcast), so this dress is easy-care: machine wash & tumble dry (yes!)
