    Oh. My. This is my second SoB dress—I received the black floral Loretta as a Christmas gift. I loved that one so much and had been eyeing this navy blue Scottie dog print for so long that I finally just had to spring for it. I am convinced that the Loretta is the single most flattering wrap dress in existence. This is sort of like ordering the same thing over and over at your favorite restaurant: I know I should branch out to SoB’s other styles but goodness, I think I’ll always have a soft spot for this one. The rayon is drapey and delicious, and this dress actually has more overlap in the skirt than my floral one, which means I don’t feel like I need to wear a slip with it. All-season for where I live, and I want one for every day of the week! ❤️ Thank you, Seamstress of Bloomsbury!

    One of my first vintage-style clothing ever bought online! Came with a lovely bag of dried scented flowers. Great shopping experience! Will definitely visit again.

    The picture shows a Judy blouse but I guess I ordered a Jive blouse instead. The measurements for the garment are off. According to the measurements the bust was 39". I measured the blouse laying flat and a size 12, from armpit to armpit, was only 17.5" which would be 35" that's 4" too small. I took a photo but Etsy won't let me post a photo unless I give a 5 star review which I'm not willing to do. I can understand a bit of error in measuring but 4" is a lot. It also took me 72 hours to receive a response from the seller.
