Inspired by the relaxed, techno-minimalist style of late-1970's/early-1980's women's fashion, I designed & handmade the Copacetic Dress to be casual, easy to wear, and still have some powerful sass and geek-chic vibes. Think of it as the vintage dress you've always hoped to find (in your size), just freshly handmade & totally one-of-a-kind.

DRESS MEASUREMENTS (range is from at-ease/"flat" to "comfortably stretched" = this is NOT the maximum stretch, but what I judge to be a good, wearable dimension)
• Bust = 48 to 52 inches around
• Waist = 46 inches around "flat" (recommend keeping it bit "loose" here, but has 3" to 4" of comfy stretch)
• Hips = 51 to 55 inches around
• Length = 42 inches from neckline to bottom edge at center back
• Sleeves = 11 inches long (from shoulder), 15 to 17 inches around at hems
(Send me a convo if you 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)

Design details include:
• easy, A-line silhouette (with shaping darts front & back)
• yoke top with rounded neckline (yoke is straight in back & v-shaped in front)
• bias-trim around the neckline (cut from the plaid fabric)
• short sleeves, pieced at the tops to match the yoke line seam
• 2 front patch pockets (off-set to fussy-match the plaid prints)
• hemmed to bottom-of-the-knee length (on most bodies, see measurements below)

Fabrics are dyn-o-mite, vintage (un-used) yardage from the 1970s: both are knit polyesters (nice & dense, not clingy or "plasticy").

A few last handmade construction details:
• dress closes with a center-back zipper, plus hook and eye at the top
• neckline, yoke, pockets, & hems are topstitched (in brown)
• all interior seams are fully finished, so this dress is easy-care: machine wash & tumble dry (neat-o!)
