Dressy, classy, chic, and a bit cheeky, this handmade, plus-sized dress revises the best features of vintage 1950s rockabilly designs, but with modern construction and sizing.

Inspired by 50s semi-formal evening gowns (think: you'd wear this out for cocktails and dancing, but not to the opera), this dress starts with a dramatic, double neckline (see close up pics), which allows for more movement room, volume, and, well, drama since it gives the feel of a PLUNGING V neck, but without actually SHOWING all of that, ahem, "plunge." (Construction and design wise, the upper\/inner neck is connected to the sleeves, while the lower\/outer neck is finished but floats free around the shoulders).

To compliment the top's shape and flow, the bottom of this dress is constucted to be very full (with 6 big pleats starting below the waist). Because of the shaping through the waist, this gives the appearance of an hourglass shape, as well as lots of fabric to twirl and flounce.

Oh, and the fabric: it's divine! Originally a cotton bedsheet (washed before repurposing, of course), its print of leopard spots is classic, rockabilly style (plus, it's comfy to wear and will launder\/last well). This is heavier-weight, tight-weave, soft but not shiny cotton, by the way, not the flimsy\/cheap stuff.

The details: the dress closes with a center back zipper (also vintage).

Dress Measurements:
• bust = 48+ inches around (+ more room in cup area = up to DD?)
• waist = 43 inches around
• hips = 60+ inches around (very full, with pleats)
• sleeves = 15 inches around at bottom sleeve hem
• length = 44 inches from neck to hem at center back (but, this dress is cut with a V in the center back, so this length will be below the knee and probably closer to mid-calf on most gals)

(convo. me--"contact the seller"-- if you have any questions, okay?)

Want this style but it's not your size or fav. color? Send me a convo. or "request custom item" from my shop homepage and we can work out a Custom Couture dress just for you. Really. It's easier than you may think.
