Bright & fun, I designed & handmade this dress to channel a Mod-60's-vibe, but with my own, modern features like:
• a classic, slim a-line silhouette, cut & darted to fit curves but not be too tight through the waist & thighs/legs.
• a rounded, jewel neckline, accented with self-fabric applique trimming
• just-the-right-length short sleeves
• 2 front patch pockets, set lower down & matched to the plaid, to keep the lines long & lean

• Bust = 43.5 inches around
• Waist = 38.5 inches around (designed to be looser here, so judge your fit based on bust/hip measurements)
• Hips = 44.5 inches around
• Length (neckline to bottom at center back) = 38 inches
• Sleeves = 8 inches long (from shoulder), 14 inches around at hems
(for your fitting reference, photo dummy is set to measurements = 43 bust, 35 waist, 44 hips--which is the tightest I'd say one could wear this dress. For tips on how to measure for your best fit, see:

Some final details: Dress fabric is a vintage 1970s woven worsted wool (medium weight), which is un-used vintage yardage. Dress is fully lined (including sleeves) in vintage nylon tricot (which is the same type of soft, smooth, knit fabric used for slips). Closes with a center-back neckline zipper (7" long, also vintage). See close-up photo for best representation of true fabric color.
