(Originally priced at $100, now 70% off! WHAT?!? Yup, I'm clearing out the Winter to make room for new, Spring sewing.)

Combining the best parts of 1980s New Wave style with a dash of 1960s Mod action, I designed and handmade this dress to be comfy, flattering, and easy to wear every day.

DRESS MEASUREMENTS: (flat/unstretched & comfortably stretched)
• Bust = 42 inches flat, 45 inches stretched
• Waist = 38 inches flat (don't recommend wearing too tight/stretched here)
• Hips = 42 inches flat, 45 inches stretched
• Length (neckline to bottom at center back) = 37 inches
• Sleeves = 22 inches long (from shoulder), bottom hems 8.5 inches around flat (10.5 inches stretched)
(Please contact me if you'd like more measurements or have fitting questions & I'd be happy to give you personalized advice. Remember, it's designed to be looser in the waist, though, so use the bust & hip measurements to decide on your fit. For tips on how to measure for your best fit, see: http://www.hissyfitoly.com/how-to-measure.html)

This NewWave Dress rocks it out with:
• a modified a-line shape, cut & darted to fit curves, but be looser through the waist.
• an out-sized, peter pan style collar (grey)
• long sleeves with accent bands (grey) & pleats at the shoulders (for room & vavavoom)
• bias-cut hemline band (grey) with extra flare (for extra flair)
• a hidden zipper pocket (7.5" wide x 4" tall) inside the hem band at center front = just the right size for a wallet or phone, & just the right placement for no bulges or accidental pocket-dialing)

Some final details: Dress fabrics are both vintage 1970s knit polyesters (nice & dense, with texture but not scratchy). True colors are a light, foggy grey & a bright, soft mock-orange (close to Pantone's "cadmium orange", not super pink/coral/salmon as it may appear in some photos). Dress is slip-on (no closures). Hems are double-rolled and topstitched in grey thread.
