Inspired by classic, early-1960's style, I designed and handmade this one of a kind, ready-to-wear top for fun, everyday wearability. Comfortable, breathable, but still handsomely hand-finished, this Dashing Top has just-enough debonair swank, without being all uppity & snobby about it.

• Bust = 50 inches around
• Waist = 46 inches around (designed to fit a bit loosely here)
• Hips/bottom hem = 52 inches around
• Length (center back from neckline to bottom edge) = 24 inches
• Sleeves = 11 inches long (from shoulder), 16 inches around bottom hems

Size estimate = 20/22W = use bust measurement to best assess your personal fit or 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:

This Dashing Top's got:
• a modified Peter Pan collar (more pointed, less rounded edges) that folds down flat over or under the bow
• center front vent that's gathered up & topped with a BIG bow done in contrasting, print fabric (& securely stitched in place)
• hourglass shaping darts (ah, darts really are a girl's best friend!)
• short sleeves, shaped with darting at the tops/shoulders for more fullness but no gathers/pleats/prissiness
• side-seam zipper opening & center-back neckline opening topped with a vintage button & loop.

Fabric is a vintage (1980's, un-used yardage) woven cotton broadcloth (soft, but still polished/smooth) with a mini polka dot print in white on gray. Bow fabric is vintage 1960's cotton pique (soft & textured) with a print of red, polka dotted bows (a bow made of bows = is this ironic or iconic? you decide...)
