The perfect sassy, comfy, & flattering dress for summer (into fall). I designed (& handmade) this Sailor Collared Dress to have:
• a v-neckline with a generously sized Sailor collar, big enough to give full shoulder coverage (dress under this collar is sleeveless)
• classic, shirtwaist style with real, vintage 50's rhinestone-centered plastic buttons (4 buttons above waist, 2 below)
• a full skirt, shaped with pleats (2 front, 1 center back) & hemmed to bottom-of-the-knee length (see measurements below)
• plus, a matching belt (cut using just the olive green stripes), finished with a real, vintage 50's, green plastic belt buckle

A few last details: dress fabric is vintage early 1960's woven cotton broadcloth (soft & dense enough to wear without a slip); dress closes with center front buttons + hidden hook & eye at the waistline; buttonholes are fully bound & sewn to the front facing (so they're sturdy, look great, and give the finished dress the right deluxe, well-made feel), hems & edges are topstitched with matching (cyan colored) thread to keep everything crisp & in place (plus, easy-care with machine wash & dry).

DRESS MEASUREMENTS:
• Bust = 50 inches around
• Waist = 42 inches around
• Hips = 60+ inches around
• Length (at center back) = 16 inches neckline (slightly lowered) to waist + 27.5 inches waist to hem
• Belt = 44 inches long (total), belted length is 37 to 42 inches
• Collar = 12 inches wide (each side) at front, 6.5 inches long at center back
