Description

The dress is based on a 1952 style pattern and has a definitely dischordant air due to the many different pieces patched together. The dress has a side zipper and slips over the head. The buttons on the front of the dress are completely mismatched. The bodice is lined. The skirt is not. Stiffener is sewed into the hem. All seams are finished.

This dress is made to order and I will need a few measurements to confirm your size choice. The top is blousey and should fit a bit loosely. The skirt reaches to mid calf. Overall, this is a fairly comfortable dress that still looks very dapper.

This dress is pieced together almost like a quilt and, although the cotton is completely washable, I would recommend washing on delicate and hang drying to keep it nice. All fabric is pre-washed so shrinking should not occur.

The availability of the prints in the dresses shown WILL vary, and as a result, each Sally Housewife Dress is beautifully unique!

Please see below for pattern sizing, as the sizes tend to run a little smaller than store bought. For example, if you typically wear a size 10, you would likely wear a size 12 in this dress. If you're right between two sizes, the larger size will be more comfortable and look better. If you have any questions about sizing, please convo me.

Mayor Dress and Jack vest and bow tie also available in the shop.
