This 1950's inspired dress is made from a black cotton fabric with a slight striped weave, and has a black polka dot cotton bodice. It has a tightly fitted waist and figure flattering flared skirt trimmed with black cotton polka dot fabric.
This dress can also be made with small cap sleeves to make it suitable to wear to the office.

As with all Pixie Pocket clothing this dress is available for custom order in different colors, fabrics and adornments.

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.


Unfortunately, I am in New Zealand which has a very different timezone to the rest of the world, I may take a bit of time to reply to your convo but please be patient I will as soon as I possibly can!
