Inspired by this fabulous, vintage fabric, I designed this dress to be short (but not scandalously short) and sweetly simple (but not at all boxy, since it's shaped with darts front & back). Modeled after late 1960s to early 1970s mod scooter dresses, it's got just-right short sleeves, front patch pockets (with decorative flaps), and a sassy, oversized collar. An appliqued heart & green rick rack trim completes the retro-lolita-meets-anime-heroine vibe = demure, kitschy, and weirdly-twee.

(fabric is stretchy, so I'll give you the unstretched [flat] and comfortably-stretched measurements):
• Bust = 40 inches around (flat), 46 inches (stretched)
• Waist = 36 inches around (flat), (stretches to 42" but recommend wearing dress a bit looser here)
• Hips = 40 inches around (flat), 46 inches around (stretched)
• Length = 39 inches from collar to bottom (measured at center back)
• Sleeves = 7.5 inches long (from shoulder), 16 inches around at hems
(FYI: model in photos is around a modern size 18, so use the bust & hip measurements above to just your best fit, or send me a convo/message & I'd be happy to give you personalized fitting advice.) For tips on how to measure for your best fit, see: http://www.hissyfitoly.com/how-to-measure.html

Some final details: The main dress fabric is a vintage, 1970s nylon-blend knit fabric with an awesome pattern of waves and swirls. Collar, flaps, and heart are made from vintage double-knit poly in a deep purple color. Dress closes with a center-back zipper (also vintage, green, & 20" long), with an elastic loop & button (vintage, lime green + white plastic). All seams are fully finished (and stress-tested after machine washing); sleeves and bottom hem are blindstitched (invisible from the outside).
