Inspired by fun & easy-to-wear scooter dresses, I designed & handmade this ModRuffle Dress to be comfortable & totally one-of-a-kind, thanks in part to the fabulous, vintage 1970's striped fabric.

Design details include:
• rounded neckline, trimmed with layers of hand-ruffled, bias-cut fabric strips
• front patch pockets (with more trim along the top edges)
• short sleeves
• shaping darts (front & back)
• an overall A-line shape, hemmed to knee length (see measurements below)

(fabric is stretchy, so I'll give you the unstretched [flat] and comfortably-stretched measurements, these are *not* the max stretch, so add 2" more stretch for getting on/off):
• Bust = 49 inches around (flat), 54 inches (stretched)
• Waist = 44 inches around (flat), stretches to 50" (but recommend wearing dress not as stretched here)
• Hips = 49 inches around (flat), 57 inches around (stretched)
• Length = 39 inches from neckline to bottom edge (measured at center back)
• Sleeves = 8.5 inches long (from shoulder), 16 inches around at hems (flat), 19 inches stetched
(Size estimate is a modern women's 22/24, but will also fit & flatter sizes 18 & 26, depending on body shape. Model in photos is a size 20, so use the bust & hip measurements above to just your best fit, or send me a convo/message & I'd be happy to give you personalized fitting advice. For tips on how to measure for your best fit, see: http://www.hissyfitoly.com/how-to-measure.html)

Some final details: dress fabric is a vintage 1970s (un-used yardage, freshly laundered) cotton-wool blend jersey knit fabric with an awesome pattern of stripes in shades of chocolate brown, russet brown, and camel brown. Dress is slip-on (no closures). Ruffle trims are bias-cut with a pinked (zigzag edge), so they'll keep getting softer & fluffier with wear & laundering, but will not fray away. All internal seams are fully finished (and stress-tested); sleeves and bottom hem are double-rolled and zigzag stitched in russet brown thread.
