Yes, the Favorite Dress is my all-time fave design, because it fits and has room in all the right places, plus looks killer on (my) plus-size bod, since it's not all clingy/stretchy/thin.

Some of it's killer design elements include:
• a semi-plunging V neckline in front (but with the right cut for full-bra-coverage) and a higher v-neck in back (for airiness + style + room to reach & move)
• 7-panel bodice (top) with gathered center panels front & back, designed to give more room for draping (& for accommodating a body that moves & reaches).
• lined shoulder yokes (for more support & structure) and demure (but generous sized) cap sleeves = emphasize here to de-emphasize other areas, don't you know?
• lined & reinforced waistband panel, cut higher than the natural waistline, but a bit lower than true "empire" waist (gives structure & shaping + a great fit, without dividing the body in an awkward place) [FYI: dress waistband is a bit baggy in the photos 'cus I'm too small to fit this dress properly; judge your fit based on the measurements below.]
• knee-length, 6 gore (panel) skirt with delicate gathering at center front & back waistline

A few last handmade production details:
• easy on/off with a side zipper closure
• cap sleeves are double-layer, with a finely pressed edge
• hand finishings include: self-fabric bias binding at the neckline (rolled to the inside & topstitched in place outside); bottom hem double-rolled and finely topstitched (in white); waistband & yokes are also topstitched to hold a crisp edge (so no extra ironing necessary).
• all other seams are fully encased (french seams), perfectly pressed, and stress-tested (for years of easy care & wear)

Oh, and the FABRIC = this dress is handmade from brand new, luxurious 100% silk designer fabric, which I bought remaindered at Britex for $25/yard (so, there's about $75 worth of fabric in this dress!). It's soft, with a smooth hand and excellent drape. The true colors of the honeycomb print are: lime green, lemon yellow, true red, salmon pink, & steel grey, all on a pure white ground.

DRESS MEASUREMENTS:
• Bust = 60 inches around (max., built to drape & best fit a 52 to 56 inch bust)
• Empire Waist = 43 inches around (at center of waistband panel)
• Hips = 62 inches around (recommend no more than 57 for drape & fit)
• Length = 14 inches from shoulder seam (at neckline) to top of waistband + 3 inch tall waistband + 24 inches from bottom of waistband to bottom hem
• Sleeves = 5.25 inches long (from shoulder), 19 inches around bottoms

Oh, oh, oh: listed shipping costs include insurance, which means that international (non-US) shipping is $uper pricey, since only Priority Mail packages can be insured through the US Postal Service. If you'd prefer a different/cheaper shipping method, send me a convo. to discuss this before making your purchase, okay? (by weight, 1st class shipping without insurance would cost: $3.50 US, $4.75 Canada, $10.50 UK & Australia).
