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" = what I judge to be a good, wearable dimension)
• Bust = 44 flat to 48 stretched inches around (max stretch here is 52")
• Waist = 42 flat to 45 stretched inches around
• Hips = 48 flat to 51 stretched inches around
• Length = 38 inches from neckline to bottom edge at center back
(yoke is 5" tall + 24.5" main body + 8.5" bottom band)
• Sleeves = 10 inches long from shoulder, 14.5 flat to 17.5 max-stretch inches around at hems
(The Copacetic Dress is designed to fit most snugly in the bust, & be looser in the waist and hip areas. Estimated size is a women's 18, but a lot depends on your body shape + where you like dresses to be snug vs. loose, so use the measurements above or 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 & curved seams back)
• yoke top with high-V neckline (yoke is straight in back & v-shaped in front)
• short sleeves, finished with a band trim
• wide bottom band, & hemmed to 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 "eww").

A few last handmade construction details:
• dress is slip-on (no closures to break or snag!)
• neckline, yoke, bottom band, and sleeve hems are durable/stretchy topstitched (in black) so they'll keep their shape & be easy-care...
• all interior seams are fully finished, so this dress is machine wash & tumble dry (neat-o!)
