•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

I designed the A-Ok dress to be comfortable, flattering, and easy to toss on & go about your life. Perfect for days when getting dressed just feels like extra stress, & you simply want to put on something that you know will look & feel nice = pretty, but not frilly or fussy; soft, but still structured; A-Ok.

DESIGN DETAILS:
• a square neckline, with small pleats (for a good fit with no gaping)
• sleeveless bodice (cut wider for full shoulder-cap coverage & contoured to fit arms-in-motion)
• neckline + armholes finished with soft & strong cotton bias (black) that's topstitched in place for a crisp edge that's also easy-care & will take lots of wear
• full skirt, gathered at the waist, & finished with a decorative bottom border
• shaping darts in the bodice front (to fit curves)
• side-zipper closure (sooo much easier to reach & use than a center-back zip!)

FABRIC:
a vintage 1990's, light- to mid-weight cotton-blend. Nice & dense (especially for its lighter-weight = a rare combo), this one's good for wearing solo = no slips needed & no show-though. Fiber tests indicate it's about a 50/50 cotton-poly blend = machine wash + tumble dry with few/no wrinkles (yes!) The print really makes this fabric, though: geometric + splatter + those colors! Definitely a geek-chic + grunge vibe going on here, which is why I chose it for this retro-riot-grrl style design (combines all of my loves from growing up in the 80s/90s in the NW).

DRESS MEASUREMENTS:
• Bust = 51.5 inches around (this is the max. measurement, so your bust *must* be smaller than this to fit into the dress; recommend at least 3" smaller for a good fit.)
• Waist =47.5 inches around
• Hips = 63 inches around
• Lengths (measured at center back) = 14.5 inches from neckline to waist + 23 inches from waist to bottom edge

SIZE ESTIMATE: women's 24 to 26 (depending upon body shape).
Model in photos is about a size 20, so this one's a bit loose on her. Send me a convo if you'd like more dress measurements or have fitting questions & I'll 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
