Yes, the Favorite Dress is my personal fav design, because it fits and has room in all the right places, still looks killer on (my) plus-size bod 'cus it's not clingy/stretchy/thin, and can also handle some rough-and-tumble wear and tear action (without needing any special care like ironing).

So, after much (re)design & work--Tada!--the new & improved Favorite Dress. Some awesome features include:
• just-deep-enough V neckline in front (plunges but has full-bra-coverage) with a higher v-neck in back (for airiness + style + room to move)
• shoulder yokes (tops of bodice) that are wider than the usual sundress straps, plus fully lined for more support & structure = emphasize here to de-emphasize other areas, don't you know?
• 7-panel bodice (top) with gathered center panels front & back, designed to give more room for bodies in motion
• lined & reinforced waistband panel, slightly above the natural waistline (for structure & shaping + a great fit)
• knee-length, 6 gore (panel) skirt with gathering at center front & back waistline
• 2 generous (and cute!) front patch pockets (for your hands + stuff)
• neckline, armholes, and pocket tops are finished with (vintage) red, cotton bias binding, plus decorative, red topstitching on all seams = durable + stylish + easy care (no ironing needed to keep edges crisp)
• easy on/off, since it closes with a side zipper
• dress has already been machine laundered & stress-tested, so no worries.

Oh, and the FABRIC = this dress is handmade from vintage woven cotton fabric with a slight textured pattern in the weave, giving it a lovely feel (similar to cotton pique, but it's not). True colors of the fabulous print are a bright, candy apple red (a.k.a. crimson, true red, almost a tomato red), a golden yellow (saffron, sunflower), and pure white.

• Bust = 55 inches around (absolute maximum)
• Waist (high) = 42 inches around (measured at center of waistband panel)
• Hips = 57 inches around
• Lengths:
- from back neckline (at shoulder seam) to top of waistband = 14 inches
- from top of waistband to bottom hem = 25 inches
• armholes = 20 inches around openings
