A vintage purple dress in a wonderful, rich purple has been appliqued with my own octopus design. The octopus is made of cotton with a guitar motif. It has a machine stitched mouth and big buttons for eyes. Before I sew my appliques to the garments they are heat bonded on. This provides clean lines and extra durability. Machine wash inside out on cold, tumble dry low.
This dress is from the late 70's/early 80's and 100% polyester. It is lightweight and slightly sheer, so you might want to wear a slip under it. The dress features a peek-a-boo slit with a button closure at the collar, buttons at the wrists of the sleeves and comes with a wide sash/belt in gray, purple and pink. It is best suited for a US size 8/10, but I have taken the following measurements:
shoulder- 16"
chest- 38"
waist- relaxed the elastic waistband measures 24". It will stretch comfortably to 32"
hip- up to about 60"
sleeve length- 21"
length from waistband- 25"
total length- 40"

One of a kind!
