Figure flattering dress based on a 1959 french pattern that has been modified to fit a modern figure. The dress is made of black crépe woolblend and it has a pleat on the front of the narrow pencil skirt to allow walking. There's a buttoning on the front and cuffs with large black satin covered buttons, sleeves are about 3/4 length with a little puff on the cuffs. There is a small collar and a belt, that is attached to the dress and can not be removed. The waist can be adjusted smaller with the belt. There is no lining so you might want to wear it with a full slip.

These are the actual measurements of the dress. Compare these to something you own and fits you well or to your natural body measurements allowing some ease on bust and hips for movement. If you're uncertain about your size, please do contact me and I'll help you find the right size :)
