This dress pattern is one of my all time rockabilly favorites! I made the dress using new black polyester/nylon blend fabric that resembles the bumpy texture of cotton seersucker; it has a nice vintage feel to it.
The pattern description reads: "The new long line princess type bodice features a square neckline and a full gathered skirt."
This very flattering dress is fitted in the waist and top of hips, but has short dolman type sleeves that are cut in one with the bodice, making it a very comfortable style to wear for dancing! If you are broad through your shoulders or back this the perfect style of rockabilly dress for you! Dress features an authentic side zipper closure. I especially like the three flirty tucks around the hips. The hot pink bias trim accenting the neckline, sleeves and 3 hem rows is from a 1950's cotton fabric in my collection. Trim is top-stitched in black.
Dress is shown over a crinoline petticoat which is not included. You'll need a full fluffy crinoline and some fun jewelry for this dress to really rock! (Ideally your petticoat should be black because the fabric has a bit of 'show through.' ) Vintage pattern used to make this dress is shown for your info only and is not included.
Dress dimensions are as follows:
Bust 34"-36"
Waist 28"
Hips free
Please consider your measurements and individual wearing comfort before purchasing, as this dress is not returnable for reasons of fit and all sales are final.
