Inspired by the figure-flattering shapes of 1950's styles, I designed & handmade this perfectly-Pretty dress to be a romantic, breezy, dream-to-wear for any special occasion (weddings, hot dates, just chillin' out with the ladies).

DRESS MEASUREMENTS:
• Bust = 53 inches around (+ about 1" more room with pleats fully opened)
• (high) Waist band = 46 inches around
• Hips = 70+ inches around (measured with gathers not fully opened up)
• Length, bodice/top = 11 inches from neckline to bottom of waistband, 17 inches from shoulder seam at neckline to bottom of waistband
• Length, skirt/bottom = 22 inches from bottom of waistband to bottom edge (of over-layer, under-layer is shorter)
• hem circumference = 83 inches
(send me a convo 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)

Designed to really fit + flatter, this Pretty Dress has:
• a scooped, sweetheart neckline with delicate pleats over the bust & soft gathering below the bust
• higher, shaped waistband, contoured to fit at the narrowest part of the body (not a true "empire" waist, but it is higher than natural waistline)
• full, flirty, knee-length skirt, with gentle gathering at the waist for shaping + floaty fullness
• center-back zipper closure, with a hook & eye at the neckline for added security
• lingerie straps at the inside shoulders = to make sure everything stays covered & in place (with no worries)
• full lining (actually, dress is double-layer, since the inner layer is a lovely, soft cotton fabric = not some slick "lining" = see last image for view of dress turned inside out)

Also comes with a matching "corsage" = multi-layer, hand-cut, abstract-floral shape, finished with a ribbon tie that's long enough to wear as a wrist corsage, choker necklace, head-band tie, or tied around the shoulder/strap of the dress. (I'll also include the remaining scraps of both fabrics, should you wish to make your own, matching accessories.)

Fabrics are both lovely, vintage, woven cotton yardage: outer-layer is a crinkle-texture lawn (semi-sheer, with some give); inner-layer is a deeper/rosier pink cotton broadcloth (soft & breathable but not sheer).
