Description

This dress is made from a rich luminescent taffeta and has a beautiful polka dot overlay and is lined with satin, a fitted red polka dot cotton waistband that defines and flatters the waist (this waist band and the matching petticoat can be made in many different colors to match your hair or wedding colours).
The extra full circle taffeta skirt has the lovely polka dot overlay and is also completely lined with satin and trimmed with a satin ribbon

The petticoat base is made from satin with a soft tulle overlay, and has a layer of stiff tulle, both layers have been trimmed with satin ribbon.
This petticoat can be made in any color you desire.

This dress can be made in plus sizing or with boning for no extra charge.

Please message me for more color options.


All my dress bodices are lined and double stitched, and all inner seams are overlocked and can be top stitched (if required for extra strength), They are sturdy and are up to heaps of wear and tear.

Measurements

Only basic body measurements are needed to determine your pattern type and size. Remember to wear proper undergarments and shoes when measuring. Also, make sure the tape measure is held snugly and firmly (not tightly) against your body and is always parallel to the floor for circumference measurements.

BUST- Measure around the fullest part of bust and straight across back
UNDER BUST- Measure around the body under the bust
CHEST- around body above fullest part of bust
WAIST- around body at natural waistline
HIP- around body at fullest part around the bottom—usually 7-9" (18-23cm) below waist
BACK WAIST LENGTH - from the most prominent bone at base of neck to the natural waistline
DRESS LENGTH - from the top of the shoulder (where a seam would sit on a t-shirt) to where you would like the dress to finish at the hem.

It is very important to send these measurements, sending different ones can lead to difficultly with patterns and fit

    PixiePocket did an excellent job on this dress. It arrived faster than I thought it was going to, the fit was perfect, not too big or too small. I did go to a seamstress to get my measurements b/c I wanted then to be just right. The quality is great, the dress is heavy and not costumey at all. I'm not one to normally wear halter tops, strapless, or sleeveless anything and I felt 100% comfortable and confident in this dress. I did take it back to the seamstress to have the top altered a bit to make it more youthful for me b/c I don't have a lot of cleavage and I did want what I have to show a bit. But that was the only thing that I needed fixed. I would definitely recommend PixiePocket! Great job!
