Inspired by the equal parts techno-70's & hiphop-80's styles, I designed & handmade this Copacetic Dress to be comfy, 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 = 45 to 51 inches around
• Waist = 46 inches around "flat" (recommend keeping it bit "loose" here, but has at least 4" more of comfy stretch)
• Hips = 51 to 56 inches around
• Length = 40 inches from neckline to bottom edge at center back
• Sleeves = 24 inches long (from shoulder), 9 inches around cuffs (+3" of stretch)
(model in photos is typically a modern size 20, so this is a bit baggy on her, especially in the sleeves. Send me a convo/message 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

Copacetic Dress design details include:
• easy, A-line silhouette (with shaping darts)
• yoke top with rounded neckline (yoke is v-shaped in front & straight in back)
• long sleeves with generous (3" tall) cuffs
• 2 front patch pockets at the hipline
• hemmed to knee length (on most bodies, see measurements)

Fabrics are super-duper, vintage (un-used) yardage from the 1980s and 1990s: main dress is a cotton-blend with some lycra (so it's soft & stretchy, but nicely dense); sleeves & yoke top done in a knit cotton with a puff/textural print that's less stretchy and dense (so also more breathable).

A few last handmade construction details:
• dress is slip-on, with a center-back neckline vent topped by a snap closure
• quality construction & a post-production laundering confirm that it's easy-care: machine wash & tumble dry (neat-o!)
