(Originally priced at $275, now 75% off! WHAT?!? Yup, I'm clearing out to make room for new designs. Same HissyFit quality & style, just priced to make you happier)

Sleek, smart, and retro with some edge (you know, not all retro has to be happy & cheerful, right?), I designed & handmade this 1960's-inspired ensemble to add a bit of glamour to any occasion. It combines my "V-V Dress" (a classic, fitted sheath dress) with a matching jacket (a short, fully lined, swing coat-style beauty).

• Bust = 46 inches around
• Waist = 38 inches around
• Hips (measured 7" below waist) = 50 inches around
• Lengths =
•• bodice, from V-neckline to waistline at center back = 12.5 inches
•• bodice, from back shoulder seam straight down to waistline = 16 inches
•• skirt, from waistline to bottom hem at center back = 25.5 inches

COAT MEASUREMENTS (taken with front edges touching):
• Bust = 62 inches around
• Bottom hem = 66 inches around
• Length (at center back) = 22 inches
(send me a convo/message if you'd like more measurements or have fitting questions & I'd be happy to give you personalized advice.) For tips on how to measure for your best fit, see: http://www.hissyfitoly.com/how-to-measure.html)

My V-V Dress is designed to have hourglass shaping (ahh, darts in all the right places), with a double-V-neckline (just low enough in front & cut a bit higher in back) and straight skirt with generous side slits. Dress fabric is a vintage, synthetic blend with a lattice weave that provides both texture & an alternating satin-shine & matte pattern (true fabric colars are shades of white and ivory, with golden-camel-latte fibers interspersed). Bodice is fully lined in crisp white nylon taffeta & dress closes with a side-seam zipper.

The matching coat is cut to be swingy (with extra drape in the back) and roomy, with kimono sleeves (cut of a piece with the body), a stand-up collar, and 3/4 length sleeves with deep, fold-over cuffs. Coat fabric is a vintage, heavier-weight blend with a woven, brocade pattern in shades of silvery-white and lichen-green. Coat is fully lined (in main dress fabric) & has 2 interior pockets.
