A red 80's dress has been appliqued with my giant octopus design. The octopus is made of art supply print cotton fabric with big black buttons for eyes and a machine stitch pout. Before sewing it on, the octopus was heat bonded to the dress for clean lines and extra durability. Machine wash inside out on cold, tumble dry low. The original fiber content tag was missing from the dress- it feels like jersey knit cotton (think t-shirt fabric) but it is probably 50% cotton/50% polyester. The dress features an open back and an elastic waistband. It is approximately a medium, but this style of dress works well on a number of sizes. I have also taken the following measurements:
chest- 36"
waist- relaxed, the elastic waistband measures 26". It will stretch comfortably to 32". It can stretch a little further but might feel a little pinchy.
hip- up to 52"
length from shoulder to waist- 16.5"
length from waist to hem- 26"
The fabric does provide some stretch.
Sorry, belt not included.
